The need for cash

I guess I am luckier than some on the money front I already have a boat that is capable of doing the race as is, I have the finances in place to get to the start line.

What I don’t have are the finances to improve on my performance. Or to put it another way my sails whilst in good nick are a generation behind!! I need new sails and in order to do that I need financial support.

2008 Season

2008 was a hectic season with a lot of training from Lymington and work on the boat. But only 1 race the UK Fastnet 6.5 co-skippered by Steve Homewood. It was a good race with an excellent downwind trip in breeze to the rock, followed by a not so pleasant slog back upwind in force 5-6 all the way back to Plymouth.

The only other venture out of note was an attempt at my 1000 mile qualification passage, which I ended up having to retire form off the Lizard with a broken rudder.
