Massive thank you to Jeff Keast for coordinating the trip, Wendy Patey and Sally Williams for handling the boats at the start and at the finish, and everyone who helped getting things together. Special thanks to the drivers and Andy Conbeer for towing our new quad on the way back.

Thank you to all those who came to support us and for those who supported us even though they weren’t there.

Without the support we couldn’t have done it.
