After quite a few scrapes and bashes, Spirit of EDF Energy (the boat generously donated by the boys’ 2 biggest supporters James Cracknell and Ben Fogle) has been through quite a bit over the past few months, let alone having previously travelled 3,000 miles crossed the Atlantic Ocean!
As a result, Will and Dan power-tooled up and set about making a few essential aesthetic improvements to her. In the baking 28 degree heat they spent the weekend sanding, sawing, screwing nails and returning her to her former beauty.
Next on the agenda for the team, in 2 weeks time, they are heading to Silverstone for BritCar24, the 24hr race for GT and Saloon cars, so she’s now ready and looking her best.
As mentioned before, the boys are still pressing for further corporate sponsorship so please do keep asking your friends, family and loved ones for ideas – it’s all for a fantastic cause!
