Over the last few days I’ve been completely taken aback by the offers of support and encouragement flowing in, its great to know that Australia and the world are right there behind us. Every email and every ‘good luck’ gives me so much inspiration! Thanks everyone so much for your emails, it’s amazing what a few words can do, keep them coming!
The launch has been an amazing success and I’d like to say a big thanks to Kim MacKay, Alex Vickers and Don McIntyre for looking after PR, Rivergate Marina and Shipyard for having us, Dan for making the boat look so great, Murray for the banners, Mum and Dad for arranging a hundred and one things, Bruce for helping get the yacht there and stopping me from stressing right out and everyone for being there!
Remember to come along and see the yacht, say hi and meet some of the team at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show on the 21st to the 24th of May.
After the show the boat will be stripped right down for a full refit before heading out for a shake down solo passage and final jobs before departure in September. Stay tuned there will be more exciting news and plenty of big milestones coming up…
