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.
