We returned to Henley Regatta for the 2nd year on the bounce in the hope of finding some much needed sponsorship.
This year we teamed up with marking gurus FST The Group who kindly allowed us to attend one of their events hosted on the day by The Travel Industry Awards.
Charlie Pitcher (who holds the world record for the fastest solo Atlantic Crossing!!) and his son Tim kindly delivered our boat Blue Steel to the venue before the guests arrived.
Incredible double Olympic champion Pete Reed took an hour out of his busy schedule to come and give his support to our campaign too. Not only is he an absolute man mountain, but he’s also an incredibly nice guy. He wrote some words of wisdom in our cabin then took to the stage to say a few words to the masses about our campaign.
His plea for support worked as we were then approached by numerous companies who want to donate to the cost of the campaign! Exciting times!! Check out the kind message he left for us below.
A huge thank you to everyone who came to the event on Wednesday and gave us their support. We would also like to say a big thanks to FST The Group and in particular Mark Howard for arranging the whole day for us. Hero!
