Gee reflects

Welcome home Bella and Olivia. The girls arrive back in to the UK this morning! So glad you’re home- we’ve missed you!

And just like that, that’s it. It’s 4 weeks since we completed our challenge of a lifetime, my Antiguan holiday has long since been over and we’re all now back in Blighty. Safe to say I haven’t missed the cold, rain or wind at all, I don’t know how you’ve all coped! How odd it feels to be back in England. In fact it still feels a little weird to be back on land separated from our boat and the girls let alone back in the UK. Read more

No, I didn’t receive any. I’m writing it. A first timer in 33 years. Last time I considered doing that I was 13 years old and the lucky recipient would have been Mark Owen from Take That. I didn’t end up doing it.

20 years onwards and equipped with slightly enhanced English skills, I’m giving it a try. Not to Mark though, sorry buddy. This letter is for a woman, a colleague, a friend. Read more

The RLAG Guide to Waves

The Surfer – this is the best type of wave, it picks up the boat and propels it forward at superhuman speed. It feels like you’ve picked up a power box in that game Mario Kart and got the speed boost – does that make sense?! It’s epic and I absolutely love them. This is the only good type of wave and comes rarely.

Rum Party:

Tuesday night had the fleet crowded around Wa’Omoni, the Antiguan team ‘Wadadlis’ boat for a rum (rocket fuel) party. These guys know how to row an ocean, and how to have fun with it! Packed into their R45 you will find pots and pans, a pressure cooker, packets of rice and tons of fishing kit! Based on the taste of their rum punch at the boat party – setting foot on Antigua is set to be bright! Read more
