Sunday 1st May

Weather permitting, I will be leaving Liverpool Marina Lock at 10.45 - 11.00 hrs on Sunday.

Up to now the weather is a bit up and down for Sunday, but fingers crossed it will be no worse than a force 6 easterly, if that's the case I am off for a wee trip around Britain..

Challenge Sponsors

1 week to go !!!

Now it is getting very real, Zuma is back in the water with all the sponsors on the hull, engine serviced. Which only leaves lazy jacks to be fitted along with sail bag and then a bit of a clean.

The generosity of everyone has been unbelievable with the charity now reaching a net figure of £1000.00. A massive thank you so much to everyone who has donated, helped, advised and generally supported the challenge.

I have just returned from a fantastic trip courtesy of Colin Brown (CB Marine Services) delivering a 47ft Bavaria Yacht from Oban to Barra in the Outer Hebrides, which really helped with finding my sea legs and last minute advice from Colin.

I have my last hospital appointment for three months (hopefully), which went well, Zuma will be like a floating pharmacy when I leave.

So, weather permitting it's all on course for leaving Liverpool Marina on Sunday at 10.30ish.

Priceless Help..

Three weeks this Sunday until the trip begins and I am busier than ever.

The press release in Yachting Monthly was picked up by a Scottish Lass who goes by the name of Sarah Brown, who's brother suffers from Crohn's disease.

Sarah has been a MASSIVE help and is currently pulling in every favour she can to enable mass publicity and support for the trip and for the Charity.

To top that her husband Colin has a company, CB Marine Services and has offered to help with chart work and anything regarding the running of the boat. Priceless !!

Press releases are now happening as well.


With a massive thanks to Mr Deveney


Its all getting exciting !!!
