“Hi all………what a ride! Wet, bumpy and bruising, but I am so happy to have got it done safely. I want to thank everyone for the support, which has come in many many different ways. Specifically I would like the thank the overnight “shore support” of Gerard, Jaeda, Kirst, Mands and Els….great company and kept me going through the night, thank you guys! Also to thank my Mum and Dad for the similar support during the trip….its was needed. There will be a full report to follow, once I have got myself sorted out, rested and put together the footage I took during the trip….sadly however I didnt get a picture of the flying fish! But brought back one or two in the boat!….Thank you again one and all for your support and pledges, its been worthwhile for Chaya and everyone that has Vitiligo!”
