Praise

Well done ladies, having had the pleasure of meeting Fiona, last year on the Ribraid, and once since, this girl knows her stuff, she has undertaken a restoration of a 1930s boat on her own, and under took numerous passages, including trips around the Scottish Isles with her uncle, and sailing passages last year in a Norwegian boat, this girl knows her stuff, and I have to admire her spirit of adventure.Having not had the pleasure of meeting MRS Jackeen I equally am impressed by her courage and spirit of adventure, and a big thankyou to Alan for providing the boat , what a trip, its hostile out of the western coast of Ireland, lest not forget many circumnavigations have failed before, A lot of respect for these two girls, and a heartfelt congratulations, I also have been on the recieving end of a lobster pot, as has Tim,easy to do,very easy

Hi all,

I for one am immensely proud of Kathleen and Fiona for what they have achieved in completing this challenge for charity. I have listened and will continue for many years to come to what they went through whilst at sea for many continuous hours day and night.

I am also extremly grateful to Alan for organising this challenge and for the many months of preparation that went into it and to the Jolly Sailor for returning my beloved Kathleen to me .

BIG respect to all involved.

PS Pic for you Pete
