An interesting reply to my posting and as always, everyone is entitled to there own opinions and thoughts.
I think you have mis- understood many of the postings about this trip.
I have personaly and publicly wished Bear and his team well for this trip but I do have an issue with him saying in public
things about me and my team that are not true! His opening page of his website is pure fiction and I am sure that if someone was telling the press something about you that was not true you would be mad as well.
I have spoken to Bear about this and the comments are still up on his site.
For the record, the two previous trips across the North Atlantic where succesful in their own right. Enda's trip was one of pure endurance and determination and by his own words he is lucky to be alive. Our trip in 1997 was planned as a miltary excersise, leaving on a date that we set a year in advance and returning on time for a party. So unless Bear intends to cross without refueling I still do not understand his claims.
Again, I wish Bear and his team all the very best for his trip, it is not an easy thing they are about to do.
And as I said to Bear last year, " I might see you on the start line" Alan P
