Back on dry land

Hello to everyone who has supported us during our epic adventure. Words can’t describe how important all your encouragement¬†and enthusiasm has been to get us through the last two and a half years - from early fundraising through to race completion.

Mauritius has proved the ideal place for the end of our long journey. We have been joined by close friends and family and I am staying in a hotel with an all you can eat buffet, for those¬†of you that know me, I¬†don’t think I need to say anymore!!!¬†Therefore after 102 days at sea¬†it has been hard to do anything else rowing related.

However we are now¬†back and my head is a little clearer so I wanted to take the time to¬† thank my personal bloggers; Greg ‘Legend’ Charman, Neil ‘U2′¬†Tutton and of course my brother Tom who has held it all together whilst¬†I have been¬†away. Tom’s support has been unconditional and I was able to leave for Australia knowing that things were in safe hands.

We wouldnt be in the position we are today without the help of Jeremy Christey and Timothy Howard. Their role in assisting us to safely cross the Indian Ocean and ultimately achieve 5 world records has been vital. Andrew and I consider them a fundamental part of the team.

We also wish to thank all of our sponsors for their support - we could not have done it without you.

¬†Looking forward to seeing you all back in the UK…¬†I will be arriving at Heathrow on August 10th on flight BA0122¬†@ 18.40 for all those who wish to come to the airport.
