Dear Shep

Many, many thanks to you and your fellow musicians and entertainers for a really superb evening on board HMS Warrior last night. Everybody without fail enjoyed themselves and out of the 20 Oyster regattas that I have organised over the last 6 years, held in the UK, Med and Caribbean, last nightís entertainment has been voted the best at any of our events. (Good old Portsmouth!!)

So many, many thanks from me and my team to you and all of your team. Itís not often I actually enjoy our own events but I certainly did last night!

Very best regards
