How are you?
Hope all's well in Europe and that the sunnier weather is finding its way there now?
Thankfully, we believe the cyclones in our region are over for this year, but we had a few close calls. Luckily Fiji has a lot of very good hurricane holes, so we were able to tuck away any time we had a warning and remained safe.
Oh & by the way, I was fortunate enough to meet Lisa Blair (the female solo circumnavigator of the Antarctic) recently at a Women's sailing event & I noticed that she had Edward William as a sponsor & she told me how the company came though for her when she was dismasted 1000 miles off Cape Town. I was very pleased to hear that! And thank you to you all there for supporting her. She's an amazing woman!"
- Many thanks & best regards. Lynne

"Our area had a big flood in April this year. None of our boats were damaged, but a privately owned boat at the same marina was extensively damaged and was also insured with Edward William. We were very pleased to hear that the people had no issues with the claim for this damage and received their payment very quickly. I always recommend your company when people ask me what insurance we have."
