Looks as though he may have written it already........

Not worth buying without the last chapter though is it? Presume it's available shortly after they return.

Not wanting to bring up an old thread but the synopsis of the book on Amazon still seems to indicate that Eddy is the first to cross the Atlantic in a RIB. Also I think someone said that he wasn’t coming within 200 miles of the artic circle ( I maybe corrected here ) so another elaboration on the facts.

Still 800nm legs are still long sea miles, and more than I think I could cope with, but not worthy of publishing a book.

In my view Eddy, and his team, have much more marketing skill than Alan P and perhaps with his previous climbing exploits and subsequent publicity, are using their skills to the full; and why not. But then again a £250,000 rib should be able to poke its nose out of the harbour, wherever it is !
