On behalf of the staff and volunteers at the Melbourne Maritime Museum – home of Polly Woodside, I am writing to express our thanks to you and your staff for the bay cruise aboard the Victoria Star. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and had a wonderful time. We were very lucky with the weather and also with the opportunity to see the Enterprize under sail. Thank you again.
