Retirement !

After 12 great years of owning Alba Sailing, Julie and I have decided that it is nearing our time to retire. We are looking forwards to spending more time with our children and grandchildren, escaping more often with our motor home and indulging in our hobbies.

We have instructed Christie and Co to handle the sale of the business in due course.

We know that to our regular and loyal customers, both charterers and chandlery customers alike, that this may be a little unsettling but we would like to reassure you that we are not going anywhere in a hurry and that all payments and bookings made for the future are absolutely safe and secure.

Our highly valued staff are all aware of the situation.

We are under no illusions that it may take some time to sell such a niche and unusual business and we are not in any great rush – just planning for the future. We try hard to communicate in a simple, effective and honest way in our business dealings – hence this announcement to our clients before it is splashed across the media.
