Happy New Year!
31 December 2001 | Exmouth, Devon, UK
What a year it has been, after being on dry land since September it's hard to believe that Tim and I were once rowing the Pacific. We are now preparing for the London Boat Show starting on the 3rd of January 2002, the last time we attended the show was last January along with 'Crackers'.
I don't think Tim and I could ever have imagined we would return to the show so soon with only half of her. She was a great little boat protecting us from the very worst of the weather we encountered, it's sad to think that only the bow section now remains. Tim has been busy doing the majority of the work for Pacific Odyssey since we got back, something for which I owe him sincere thanks. His book writing is also taking shape, as is the documentary we will both keep you all posted. I've also been busy with my next expedition; "The Quest", which I will be officially launching at the London Boat Show 2002. The Quest aims to be the first circumnavigation of the globe under sail via the two Polar Regions in history. The project has been in the planning for the last three years and after a frantic period since September we are now ready to launch further details on my website at www.dommee.co.uk Tim and I will also be giving a presentation on Pacific Odyssey on 8 January 2002 at 1400hrs in the Wellington Suite Earls Court. All proceeds from the day which be donated to the Evolution Foundation a charity committed to providing IT and education to underprivileged children worldwide. If you would like to attend please contact the team or me direct at firstname.lastname@example.org soonest as places are going very quickly. Finally thank to you out there who believed in Tim and I, your kind words and support will never be forgotten. Special thanks must go to our support team who really made Pacific Odyssey happen, Al Keir, Tony Higham, and Harry Moody I am sure we will all work together again. This year has been a great year and I will never forget it as I look forward to the challenges that lie ahead. Let's take no prisoners and if you're going to be bear be a Polar bear. Happy New Year GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGHHHHHHH
