Well the first proper article has been printed in the November edition of All at Sea. (Online article)
The next challenge looks like a record attempt in Pixel Flyer in early December from Lands End to John O’Groats. We have the backing of the Scottish sailing association and the Minister of sport for Scotland amongst others. The plan is to take the boat down to Falmouth area in a couple of weeks time and wait for the right weather before three of us blast our way North. The crew will be myself, Phil Sharp (another professional sailor aiming for the Vendee Globe race next year, and Sean Conway – who has already cycled around the globe and walked, cycled and swam the route from Lands End to John O’Groats. We will have some media coverage at the start and at the finish when we eventually arrive for a VIP reception.
