Hello Girls,

I heard about this trip through the old grape vine yesterday - news travels fast.

As someone who's from "The D" originally and left a number of years back, to seek fame and fortune on the mainland, itís nice to see it used as the start / finish point for this challenge. Some of my family are still over there and know of Fiona and her love of all things boating. I'm pleased to see both girls back safely from their epic voyage in aid of charity. I certainly wouldn't attempt it in my one.

I think I recognise her Uncle in the first picture in the Marina although it is a few years since I have returned home.

It would be nice to see some pictures of "The D" ??

And once again well done to both Fiona and Kathleen

Ian
