THE TEAM HAVE COMPLETED THEIR JOURNEY FROM NEW YORK TO SALCOMBE

TIME AT SEA 93 DAYS 20 MINUTES

Welcome to Ocean Valour 2015

The Brain Tumour Charity

Salcombe Yacht Club

1st September, 2015

It’s only been a week since we rowed into Salcombe harbour after 92 days at sea, and I just did two talks in a row at the Salcombe Yacht Club. The reception was incredible. The place was rammed and it was great to see such a lot of children and young people in the audience. I cycled through photos of our journey on the overhead projector, and I’d memorised the talk so I didn’t have to read from notes. Then came the questions – people, it seems, are fascinated by the following: the capsizes (they were scary, but also fun), where we poo (in a bucket), and whether me and Loz fell out with each other (no). After the talk we auctioned off a picture of dad’s boat, raising £2,500 for The Brain Tumour Charity.public-speaking1
