    Well done to you both. You must be really chuffed. Keep the info coming.
    Once you get clear weather I am sure you will enjoy the night sailing using the stars to steer by – its a lovely feeling, especially when its not too cold.

    Fantastic story, and the beginning of a real adventure. It was lovely to meet you both last night, don’t leave Alderney too quickly! X

    Congrats to you both…now that you’re “really” on your way maybe you need to add a second globe that shows your position instead of the positions of those of us who are reading about your adventures 🙂

    I am very happy for you Neil, but equally very proud of you. You took an idea, a dream and you made it reality…how many people on planet Earth get to do that?

    Fair winds and smooth seas as you navigate the rest of your life and dream.

    Well done my older Brother!

    First crossing! Must be a rough area for sailing, between tides, rocks, traffic and sometimes poor visibility. Well done Welcome to the other side.

    I can’t tell you how excited I was to read this post! I particularly enjoyed the part about feeling the happiest you have in years. That’s what it’s all about! No doubt there are many adventures to come, and as always, many people celebrating each step of your journey. Thank you for continuing to share it all with us. You provide more inspiration than you can possibly know.
