Cheeki Rafiki

Following the loss of the Cheeki Rafiki funds are being raised for the RNLI: the JustGiving page containing the details is here.

I don't want to take the RIBnet spotlight of Macmillan in any way but thought this might be of interest to some.

You are for sure not taking any spotlight off Macmillan but for sure from this
999 Round Britain Coastal Challenge 2014
Both events are raising funds for the RNLI which is great. The 999 Challenge is also raising for WUKSART. Let's hope both raise lots of dosh

Andre. If it helps The original "Never Enough" went around Britain in 7 days back in 1992. She was then sold to Gary Burns from Dartmouth where her name was changed to Red Dwarf and used as a succesful bird spotting / fun business.
It was "Still Never Enough" that crossed the North Atlantic in 1997 and set the London - Monaco Record in 1998. So, the name is lucky!
Good luck to the team and my message of support is "Listen to the Locals" Alan P
