Dear Sail & Power (Green Point) Team, I am writing to extend my heartfelt gratitude and appreciation for the exceptional experience that my nephew, Jason Deysel, had with Sail & Power As his Aunt, I cannot express how grateful I am for the opportunities you provided and the positive impact you have had on his life. First and foremost, I want to thank Sail & Power and all the staff and lecturers involved in Jason's courses. Your commitment to his growth and development has been exemplary, and your dedication to his success has not gone unnoticed. The knowledge and skills he acquired during his time with Sail & Power have been invaluable. I would like to extend a special thank you to Natalie, who showed remarkable compassion, understanding, and care towards Jason. I am deeply grateful for her realization that it wasn't just about him passing the courses, but also about preparing him for the challenges of the real world. These small yet crucial elements are often overlooked, and it warms my heart to know that Jason had someone like Natalie to guide him through his journey. Furthermore, I must mention Don, whose mentorship left a lasting impression on Jason. Don's guidance and support have had a significant impact on his personal and professional growth. I am eagerly looking forward to hearing all about Jason's experiences when he returns home. However, my most profound appreciation goes to Geraldo. From the very beginning, when I shared my idea and aspirations for Jason, he was on board with unwavering support. The long conversations we had over the phone were invaluable, and I cannot thank him enough for understanding my deep desire to help Jason succeed. Geraldo's guidance and advice on the courses Jason needed to take were instrumental in shaping his path. Despite my occasional moments of panic, Geraldo patiently listened to my concerns and provided much-needed reassurance. Sail & Power has truly been a beacon of hope and opportunity for Jason, and I am grateful for the transformation that has taken place in him. The personal growth and confidence he has gained are immeasurable, and it is all thanks to the exceptional team at Sail & Power. Once again, please accept my heartfelt thanks for everything you have done for Jason. Your organization has played a crucial role in shaping his future, and I am forever grateful for the positive impact you have had on his life. I hope that in the future, other individuals like Jason will have the privilege of benefiting from the same extraordinary experiences at Sail & Power. With warmest regards and deepest gratitude, Dorianne Retalic (Jason's Aunt)
