Dear Friends, Family & Supporters,
Alex, Ed, Tom and I are delighted to send you our final Oardacity monthly update email. For those that are receiving their first update email, thank you very much for your recent donation and support for our charities through our challenge. We appreciate it hugely.
Race/Covid update: Having held numerous conversations with Atlantic Campaigns (Race Organiser’s), we wanted to let you know this year’s Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge will take place and we will get to the start line. With various contingency plans in place, including chartering a BA flight to the Canaries, we will be heading out to La Gomera for early December ready for the start on the 12th.
Having spent the last three years putting this challenge in motion, as skipper of Oardacity, I personally wanted to say how incredibly proud I am of our team and the boys. It’s very difficult to put into words, how I can truly justify the sacrifices we have made to get to where we are. You are always told as perspective teams that the true challenge is getting to the start line; well add Covid in, it has been a herculaneum effort over the last 6/7 months to get to where we are. We couldn’t have done it without our amazingly supportive other halves, friends and family. I know I can speak on behalf of the boys and say it has been a hugely humbling period in our lives. Thank you for all your support.
Our Boat: fully laden with everything we could possibly need for our expedition, we said goodbye to Oardacity last week, as she makes her way down to La Gomera by container ship. We couldn’t be prouder of her and thank all our Partners and Sponsors for their support. Team shot was after a long final day packing her up at Rannoch Adventure.
To summarise updates from last month:
Thank you all for your continued support, we are very grateful.
Alongside all our good news, we still NEED YOUR HELP, so please do spread the word, pass this email onto friends and family, as we look to raise much needed funding for our charities
