"The atmosphere of Beyond the East Coast was very relaxed, with a professional approach to boat owners from the Above and Beyond team. My highlight of the day was meeting other boat owners with different levels of ability, but all interested in completing an East Coast trip. I learnt that being prepared to do a trip will make it achievable, and I shall look to attempt  some small trips in the next 18 months"
