TSO: How did you find the inaugural Ibiza Rendezvous?
PdeS: I expected to enjoy some good sailing, have fun in a small, friendly regatta environment and all my expectations were met. The atmosphere was casual, friendly and intimate unlike many other regattas, which have become too impersonal and have too many participants
TSO: Being quite the regatta veteran yourself, do you feel that the Ibiza Rendezvous is a unique and welcome addition to the regatta circuit?
PdeS: Yes, it has an excellent marina venue without crowds and well thought out race courses.
PdeS: As with so many sporting events they become too professional, impersonal and too large in places that are already too busy. This is a continuing trend where people don’t realise that ‘less is more’. Having the Ibiza Rendezvous in October means there is life but not overcrowded.
TSO: What regattas are you hoping to attend next year with Silver Spray?
PdeS: The Ibiza Rendezvous for sure!
