It may not be the Race 2 Alaska but huge congratulations to my mate Paul who completed his own personal challenge this weekend.
Paul Joined other DCA members for their rally at Bembridge Isle of Wight, sailing his home built Selway Fisher Lynx 14 over from Langstone in company with Chris Waite who kept an eye on him.
Paul's had some health issues over the past couple of years and its great to see him achieve one of his own personal goals. Well done mate.
Sailing from Chichester Harbour to Bembridge involves crossing one of the busiest shipping channels in the world, and I probably didn't help matters when I warned him to watch out for Cruise Ships, Car Transporters, Oil Tankers, The Royal Navy and the big round forts built to ward off Napoleon and The Germans.
Of course he did what he always does and completely ignored me.
Well done that man.
Thanks to CW for the photos.
