Transatlantic RIB Crossing

Dear guys

I thought the attached website might interest some members of the forum

I am aware we are following the hallowed footsteps of Alan Priddy and would so value everyone’s support. We are all regular readers of postings from the forum and it has been so valuable this far in receiving such good advice from you lot!

You might also enjoy an article I have done today for the Daily Telegraph (p24) on risk and a bit about the expedition.

Thank you everyone on the forum in advance for your encouragement and support.

Do come and say hello to us all at the London Boat Show, if you’re down, where we’re by the entrance.

Bear

Hi Bear

I just wanted to wish you all the best with your record attempt I'm sure you will make it and raise lots of money along the way. Have you spoken to Alan Priddy. He may be able to give you some good advice about the trip.

Good Luck

Julian

Best of luck in your endeavours.

How about a link to rib.net on both the sites mentioned in your earlier postings?

I am behind you all the way. By even trying to get to your dream you are heroes. I have had more than my fair share of criticism on another forum by people who have no idea what they are talking about. They sit in the comfort of their offices bashing out what can only be described as total crap bourne about by a total lack of knowledge of the world!

To all your team, "Go For it" just remember, in the footsteps of failure comes success. Alan P

PS. Read the article, very good but didn't like the title "Why young men seek danger". When / if you are succesful it was a bunch of old farts twice your age that nearly did it six years ago!!!!

Yup Alan. There are those that go to Orkney by SIB and there are those who don't.
