The last two weeks has been super busy getting ready – today even more so since Ricardo Diniz from Portugal, my weather guru, Jesus lookalike and manager over here in Oz said we were good to go rowing. He will update in a day or so with some info about the first strokes out to sea.
5am Aussie time will see me taking the first few strokes away from the jetty – happy happy days to be living the dream. I have a few butterflies for company but am feeling good and ready to go.
Thank you for all the messages of support – this is such a team event, I just do the rowing! Don’t forget to shake out your pockets for shrapnel and papery bits and wing it to the wonderful work of Arthritis Care. By the time I reach Mauririus – lets see it topping 10K for them. So tell all your mates, colleagues, rellies, pets and neighbours and lets see if we can nail it.
A huge thank you too for the help, sponsorship, donations, advice etc that have helped me get this far and will help me get across the ocean, to folks and friends for being so understanding of my fruit loopy ways, to Royal Perth Yacht Club here in Freo’ and Perth for hosting me and welcoming me so warmly and the little fairies that have helped pack the boat into the wee hours out here!
Looking forward to seeing you in Mauritius and beyond.
