I am thinking that maybe they fear being associated with a "failure"?
Your right if Alan and Co had sunk as they reached their target the Soltron Atlantic Challenge would have hit 50 times as much media coverage. Alas we live in Britain who like to hear about the failures and people who didnt make it rather than the ones that did.
Seondly, if there had been enough money in the coffers I would have dipped my hand in my pocket and added to the pot despite Soltron being on the boat or not. However, they did have Soltron aboard supplied by us, not a great contribution but every little helps.
As I said before they deserve lots more recognition than they get/got/are having for such an achievement, well done to them, they had the right boat underneath them but above all they had the courage and determination to go out there and do it. Their skill and enthusiasm paid off and I hope they will think about doing something else in the future. If that happens give me a call I will certainly look to assist wherever I can.
