#HellOnHighSeas

sport relief

Tonight at midnight – 6 celebs, 6 professional sailors and a film crew set off to raise money for sport relief by sailing a VOR65 around Britain.  One of the sailors is Dee Caffari, who I used to work with many moons ago at the Challenge Business.  I have sailed and raced around Britain on many different craft but not on a VOR65 and not in March.  It will be cold and wet and windy – with some seasickness – Good luck Dee and crew – we wish you well.  I will be following them on Facebook, and you can too, at #Hellonhighseas or Volvo Ocean Race .

Meanwhile, we are very pleased to still be sailing in the sunshine in Lanzarote.

When the videos for Hell on High Water get too hairy for you, why not take a look at this one.  Tony’s preview with footage all shot on Velvet Lady last week.  Looking forward to the full edition – watch this space.
