Whilst I wait in Plymouth for a weather window to open...

Thank you to everyone who has sent me messages of support. Keep them coming. It does keep my spirits and excitement high.

A couple of message have come in from other adventurers as below.

A couple of messages of note below (amongst the many emails of support received)
Mr Giles Chichester (Sir Francis Chichester's son, MEP for the South West of England and Gibraltar) has sent a message. "I wish you well in this challenge. I am pleased that my father and his achievements in 'Gipsy Moth Circles the World' have inspired you. It's great that his spirit stays alive in this way"
- Sir Francis Chichester was the first person to sail around the world with one stop. Mark is following this route, and his book "Gipsy Moth Circles the World" is also highly recommended.
Sir Robin Knox Johnston (the first person to sail around the world non-stop and solo has also sent a message to Mark saying "Good luck with your voyage. Sounds fun". His book "A World of My Own" is highly recommended and the book has certainly has helped to inspire Mark.
A message has also been received from Mr Adrian Flanagan. He is currently completing the first ever solo voyage polar and East to West around the world. He has just arrived back in the UK waiting for winter to pass before continuing the journey on his yacht residing in Alaska. His website is Mark and Adrian are using the same sails and Adrian has passed on some good last minute advice.

That's good evening from Ingrid at Plymouth.
