It has been a while since my last blog and so I wanted to update you all with what I’ve been doing.
The last few weeks have involved writing lots of letters and emails to anyone and everyone I can think of to try and drum up some supporters. I have to admit that this isn’t an easy process and not receiving the response you are hoping for can be wearing. However, I keep looking at what the current Clipper Race teams are going through and it helps to fuel my determination to keep trying and writing more letters. Today someone told me that every ‘no’ takes you one-step closer to the ‘yes’ that you need. So that means another round of letters will be landing on desks in the next couple of days!
I have been overwhelmed by the kind things my friends have been saying about me when sharing my website or passing on my information to the contacts they have. I am grateful to have this support and these kind words certainly help my drive.
Pledges of support that I have received so far makes my total be the equivalent of 1676 nautical miles, so in Clipper Race terms this gets me from London to the Azores which is a good start in my journey.
I need £1.25 per nautical mile on this 40,000 mile journey so if you are able to help me with this total by supporting me for some miles or have contacts that I can approach then please get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org
