After a few days of hard decision making, I have decided that because of Alice and Isaac at home and work commitments looming soon after christmas that I am going to have to abandon the epic voyage at this point. I would have loved to complete the crossing but came to the decision that I would much rather leave at this point having thoroughly enjoyed the experience thus far rather than stay and slug through the crossing running the risk of resnting the experience if it over ran much and stopped me seeing Liz and the kids over christmas before I am due to fly off for work again.
A big thank you to everyone for their support during this venture, especially to Nick and Phill who are continuing on as crew thereby making my decision to fly home at this point slightly less difficult as Mum and Dad still have a pair of deckhands. And an enormous thank you to Mum and Dad for letting me crew for them this far - I started with very few pre conceived ideas about what life would be like on the ocean, and thanks to their experience and planning it has been great if tiring.
I wish Mr & Mrs Captain and crew of Andromeda the best of luck, safe sailing and favourable winds for the rest of their adventure and look forward to hopefully joining them again in the future.
All that remains is for me to sign off with a double backwards somersault through a hoop whist whistling the star spangled banner.
