Feedback from Members

Many thanks to Morfudd Paul and David Pearce for taking the trouble to write a full description of their experiences on this cruise.

Thank you so much for organising the ‘Iberian Experience’. We enjoyed it greatly, and, although we were disappointed not to reach Lisbon and Oporto, the entire experience was so positive that it washed all our worries away!  (ASW, Poole)

My husband had a hunch that the Bay of Biscay was going to be rough, so as he is a bad sailor he decided to opt out of this trip but was perfectly happy for me to go. And at Dover it was lovely to see the familiar faces of friends we had made before on previous TRBC trips.  (Read the full story from Morfudd Paul)
