Good idea.

We're arriving on Saturday. We don't have the briefing and leave the dock until Sunday but that was a good idea about the sandwich. We're one boat going with our sailing club and we've already made arrangements and reservations to have dinner together nearby on Saturday night before all the boats scatter among the islands on Sunday.

Fantastic!!!
