To Whom It May Concern:
Hanna Golebiewska was the captain of the crew that sailed our new Lagoon 450
from La Rochelle, France, to Fort Lauderdale, Florida this winter. The boat arrived
safely and in excellent condition.
Although Hanna has the strength of personality to be in command of her crew, she
also possesses kindness and warmth. She arrived in France with one other crew
member from Poland, and met the other crew members for the first time in front of
us, having selected them from their resumes and her online chats with them. She
must be a very good judge of character, because they were all capable, wonderful
people. It was heartwarming to see the bond they had created by the time they
reached the other side of the Atlantic. She had the ability to mold these previous
strangers into an efficient crew.
She is very accommodating and frugal, and does not compromise on safety issues.
She is also extremely clean, keeping surfaces on the boat covered and protected
from wear and tear, and using only what was absolutely necessary. Even when two
tiny stove knobs were damaged accidentally, she made sure to purchase new ones
when she returned to France, and personally delivered them to us on her next
We wish her the very best in her future endeavors!
