After a very windy night on the coral atoll of Suarji were have taken the morning to repair boats, record thoughts and reflections on the journey so far and even get in a little “beach” football. We are all well pleased with yesterday (reflecting on it on a warm public holiday morning!!). More than 65km of open ocean paddling with seas to 2 metres and very confused, high winds gusting to 30 knots. Chris and David “practiced” capsizing and re-righting their boat about an hour and a half into what turned out to be 8 hours on the open water. In a high wind and confused sea this uses a lot of energy however as testament to our fitness, and a bit of mental toughness honed on our bike leg, we finished the day strongly.
David is passionate about the community and participating in interesting challenges. Each interesting challenge is an opportunity to raise awareness and new funds for a variety of community organisations.
