Captain Jon's Final Log

It was quite emotional sailing into Dartmouth yesterday after such an adventure; seeing so many different parts of Britain and sharing this with so many friends. In all we travelled 3345 miles, with surprisingly good weather (only stormbound for two days in total) and managed to keep to the passage plan almost exactly. The windiest part of the trip was the first and last week of the trip along the south coast - quite unexpected. 

Thank you to all 43 crew members for making it all possible and for their help and friendship. We managed to raise over £1000 for Dartmouth Lifeboats (helped by the numerous pound fines for crew members not wearing the team hats ashore). It certainly has been an incredible 14 weeks... a fantastic and exciting journey that I shall remember for the rest of my life.
