First off we would like thank all the personnel at the 4th Battalion the Yorkshire Regiment for hosting us in the Military village. It all went off seamlessly, as you would imagine when working with such a professional bunch but they made us feel really welcome and looked after all of us brilliantly, above and beyond the call of duty.
We were lucky enough to be invited along to the Welcome to Yorkshire stand for live Q and A on Tuesday, this led to several other interviews which you can see and hear in the new Press page of the website. On Wednesday night we had the absolute honour of meeting Sir Gary Verity aka Mr Yorkshire and the man responsible for getting the Tour De France to start in Yorkshire, no mean feat I'm sure you'll agree. Their backing and support has given our campaign a real boost and momentum is high.
Finally we need to say a MASSIVE THANKS to all the people who came and got stuck in on boat hook and on the 30 Second rowing machine challenge. You made the show for us and we were overwhelmed by the genuine interest, generosity and support we got from you all, come rain or shine (and we got plenty of both). With your help we raised nearly £1000 pounds towards our campaign costs, shattering our expectations and bringing us one step closer to the start line next December.
Here we will be keeping you up to date of our preparations, training and progress towards competing in the Atlantic Challenge in 2018.
