  1. continually awed by your journey

  2. Hello chaps; Nice pictures and stories have been following your progress. We have a mob of children in roughly the same proportions and will be heading off cruising this summer from the UK, so I read your contributions will great interest. I cannot but help look at the pictures and think “oooh, they have a hard dink and a RIB, maybe we need a RIB” or “Solar, more solar, I need more solar” etc. Looks like you are having fun and we wish you well. We will be on or Dark Horse Schooner Facebook, when we get going. But Interweb at 20 bucks an hour I don’t suppose you will be looking much.


  3. Happy (late) birthday Max I would have made an elastic tender for your sailboat but I lack the dexterity. Best wishes to all John
