Sorry if I haven't replied to many posts on here, I just needed to get it done and the only way for me was post by post.

I still have so much more to tell and I could keep going and going but please ask away if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them

I wrote this up as I met a guy called Mike Brooke at the boat show who also had done round Britain and written a book after completing the same route in a sail boat which took him 37 days in 2008.

He tried so hard over the 10 days to get me to write a book, but unfortunately I have dyslexia and I find these things quite tough, however he did tell me that I shouldn't keep it to myself and others would want to know?

So if you want to own a Round Britain Book, signed by Mike then I can post his details on here as he is raising money for Fight for Sight, the book is about 10

Could not wait to take my boots off - not even my CAT basecap
Was a good exercise - swimming behind a boat in a drysuit and getting into a RIB without ladder
But we had Scramble near by ..



Last "high five" with Alex - which was quite difficult due to the air in the suits ..

All the days we been all together at sea we were all so deeply involved with all the daily things that there was no room to think that there will be an end . Ok - probably looking at the budget would have been a good indicator
But in Ramsgate - where we spent the last evening and the last dinner together I could not get it into my mind that this is almost the end of this fantastic journey !
After everything we went through together it was really hard to say goodbye !

Here I want to say a SPECIAL THANKS also to Biffer for his hospitality , all his highly valuable advise , tips , tricks or help !
He is a man who is not asking much - he is simply doing it !!
Also many thanks for taking care about my trailer maintenance ( Ben - the "trailerguy") during our absence !





BLACK HAWK arrived safely @ home and is now ready for the next trip

Alex if dyslexia is the only thing stopping you from doing a book, have you considered using a dictaphone? Your language is good enough based on re posts.

Thanks again and well done. A fantastic read. I'd buy a book to cover all the other details, technical bits, navigation, worries, set up, humour, emotions etc

Thanks dude, but sadly there's no book in me, but with very little to watch on ribbing I'd have a go at making a documentary type film, but not a book
