Bluewater USA – ONE Year Anniversary Party – Thank You!

A heartfelt THANK YOU!

First and foremost, I want to extend a simple, heartfelt, and well-deserved THANK YOU! Not only for attending our One Year Anniversary Party, but to all who made this year one for the history books.

I couldn't be more grateful to have Jay, Brian, Amilee and their team at Bluewater Crew Training as my new partners in the USA, as well as Peter Bennett, John Wyborn and Phillip Holden, our partners in Europe. Our unified goal to offer One Company, One Complete Service is coming to fruition.

The same gratitude goes, of course, to those of you who were by my side in the office, "my girls", Sue, Terry, Shalom, Edie, Holly, Alicia, and the newest additions to the company, Robert Moore and Albert van Zyl! Also, my friends, my family, and our amazing clients and crew, new and old, you have made this whole transition possible. And because of all that, we sure did celebrate!
The One Year Anniversary Party was a smashing hit! The Triton, as always allowed us to host a fantastic networking event with captains, crew and marine industry professionals, and over 400 people attended! We had Dixie Pig BBQ again this year (they make REAL North Carolina Style BBQ, which is my favorite and apparently all of yours too), Green Bar & Kitchen served up some gourmet sides, The Sweet Castle Bakery was a real treat with their specialty cupcakes and Waxy O'Connor's Fort Lauderdale kept the beer flowing. We stepped it up a notch this year with one of my favorite local bands, Zero to Sixty.

Please pat yourselves on the back! You are excellent examples of hardworking and dedicated change champions! For that, and numerous other unmentioned contributions that might well take all day to name, I can't thank you enough!

Thank you all, sincerely, for being true professionals, for being inspirational! You are a great team. This successful outcome, the result of all your hard work and dedication, is down to you. And, lastly thank you for the pleasure and privilege of working with you!

Thank you to everyone, once again!
