2021 come at me
So now I’m excited. Excited to do some doing, to put it all into practice. Vaccinations are happening thick and fast in the UK and I feel like I’m reemerging from our collective COVID cocoon – slightly paler and with softer hands in my case. Don’t get me wrong – I have enjoyed being an indoor person. Curling up on the sofa with Salty the Cockapoo is great, being warm is great, sleeping is great, eating real food is great. But I feel like Captain Jack without a ship in the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie (I know, I know), and the Oceans are calling….
In the meantime I’ve been training with the awesome team on ‘Powerplay’ – the blue MOD70 trimaran that is ‘a little bit less but still quite a lot’ scary despite the three transatlantic crossings and many other miles I’ve now spent on her. We’re on standby to have a go at a few local world records if the weather presents itself, so keep an eye out and don’t blink. I’m stoked to be back on the water but the eyes are firmly on the long game. The Vendée cycle starts this November with the Transat Jacques Vabre double handed transatlantic race and I intend to be there.
So this is me, building the relationships that will make the dream happen, commercial partners, charity partners, media partners, putting it all in place. If you want to chat, shout. I like talking about it and guess what? I’m around!
