You'll have all the North-West RIBsters in there after the free beer as well!

You'd better start out now if you've got to get to Aberystwyth by Tuesday!

Nah I'm charging that lot double, make up for the profits lost providing drink to the Jolly Sailors.

Aye, it'll take a while to get down there on the ol' mountain bike won't it? Good job I'm getting a lift then!

Nige update--Aug 15th

This guy has either been at sea too long or their communications have been out for a couple of weeks.His comments claim that they were the "FIRST" to cross unassisted--someone should tell him that "Team Priddy" was off Cape Wrath on Aug 3rd some 12 days before. Oh well , maybe he ment the first to cross unassisted in an open boat--still wrong --Alan did it in 1997--but then again " Never let the truth get in the way of a good story"
Whatever--Bear and his guys are still all Heros in taking on the "North Atlantic .I take my hat off to them all.

This is such a shame. For Bear and his team to claim this as a first means that all five of them have no regard for anything that anyone has done before. They may have succeded in conviencing the press and sponsors of what they feel is a first but in reality the only people they are fooling are themselves. Deep down inside the entire crew know that they have failed to achieve what they set out to do.

They are neither the first or the quickest.

Knowing that they would come back with nothing but bullshit is something that we have prepared for.

What they should be doing is basking in the glory of a safe passage home.

Their lies and deciept will come back to haunt them in the very near future. Everyone in the world knows that they are not the first and it is a shame that even our own Royal Navy have been conned by the "Bear Spin"

If you want to help rectify this carrage of injustice write into the News, BBC, Times, Telegraph and any other publication that you see the story in.

The more lies he tells the stronger we become in establishing the truth
