A huge sense of achievement felt by the entire team having had the stamina to see the challenge through to the end. Our ambition was to complete the race this year and we have managed that sucessfully.
Kookaburra was a great boat to do this race in, even if the keel nearly fell out the bottom of the boat 1/3 of the way throught. I will however dream of self tailing winches and a decent main track as she is hard work with only two in the cockpit.
Our thanks goes to everyone who sponsored us as we have raised loads of money for some great charities.
Will we do it again? lets wait and see, however Marco has already worked out how to cut his pack weight by about 2kg so I think I know where he will be this time next year
