    My Company, Yucan2 Personal Development, ran a Workshop yesterday & utilised this wonderful cruise to begin our day! Everyone that joined us on this magical day thoroughly enjoyed the professionalism offered by the Crew to make it a pleasant start to our day ! We loved the commentary & also some enjoyed the experience to skipper the boat also ! We of course enjoyed the beautiful views & the weather added to this magical experience! The morning tea offered was amazing & the red carpet entrance was perfect for what we were wanting to achieve for this day which was seeing just what is possible by investing in yourself & working on yourself with rituals each day & how easy it is to change a state so you can manifest just what you want in your life ! Thank you ? to everyone involved in helping make this day so memorable for so many in our group ! My cup is now full xx We look forward to joining you all many times again x Tam Richie
