Arek drifted across a similar route in 1998 and "Bear Grylls" says he is going to be the first to cross the Atlantic in an open boat, what do you all think ?I think not!!!

Our pals at www.arctic2003.com
are just as brave as all the previous people. Mr P have you looked at there web site?They dont seem to be claiming there the first are they.
If you can point us to a link where that claim is made then I appologise.
I dont feel we should not forget what they are attempting,and the conditions they may well encounter,with no saftey nets.
There is no disrespect here,For past achievments, but anybody who tries there crossing in a open rib deserves my support and that of the Rib Community as it promotes ribs as the true go anywhere Sea boats they are.
The sea doesnt care if its your first time or indeed its going to be your last time.It will blow the same no matter what.It will also do what it wants when it wants.
So good luck Mr Bear and any others past and present I wish you all well and a safe return.
