its nialls day to write the blog but as its
christmas thought id send a quick message!
merry christmas to everyone, to be hones it feels
like just another day out here because we are so removed from normality. as its
christmas i thought it would be a good time to say thank you to the people who
have made this adventure possible. starting with our sponsors, this is an
expensive thing to do so your support financially or in the loaning of equipment
has been invaluable:
mactra - thanks jim, im glad you answered the phone
when we didnt have a clue what we were doing with the watermaker, it works
science in sport
merrell - the raincoat has saved me on many an
occasion already! its wet out here!!
maui jim sunglasses
thanks to our generous and understanding employers
who are also one of our largest sponsors - sanderson recruitment and resource
direct, also hi to everyone we work with. how was the christmas
to jamie and emily of global boatworks, well
without you we wouldnt have a boat so we'd be swimming the atlantic! youve done
an amazing job and shes performing amazingly well!
a special thanks to all of our friends aho have
supported us in many ways and raised money for us, theres too many to mention
to the McCanns - Anna, Seamus, Finn and Rory, your
support has been outstanding in every way, its been great getting to know you
all and i look forward to sharing a drink or two with you all on our return.
Finn, i'll be climbing like a like chimp by June!
to my family who have been amazing, its been
fantastic having so much contact with you out here, i feel closer to you than
ever before! - mum, dad, sam and stacey.
a special mention to my incredibly supportive,
understaning (and beautiful) girlfriend Jess, youve been amazingly supportive
and tollerant since i decided to embark on this adventure, ive been a tough man
to live with and will be sure to make up for it on my return. i cant wait to see
Finally thanks to everyone else who follows our
progress and sends us messages of support. im sorry if ive missed
well thats me done, sorry its not very entertaining
but to us very important that these people get a mention.
