  1. Amazing pictures – who was flying you there Trish?!
    Great that you all arrived and that Trish made it. George’s school had their raft day yesterday. Lots of rafts were built, lots of fancy dress. I don’t know how much they raised or how they intend to get it to Water Aid, but it should help swell the coffers.
    Looking forward to hearing more in due course.

  2. Great pictures, Antiki was certainly fit for purpose, but what do you do with here now. It would be a shame to dismantle her, and no! I am not volunteering for anything. Ted.

    Maybe the raft can be displayed in The Maritime Museum, London along with the lifeboat that Anthony wrote about in his book!

  4. Well done guys, don’t let them put it in a museum just yet, that was just a warm up, next one has to be the Pacific, South America to Australia no? 😉

    Habt ihr die ganze Toblerone-Schokolade gegessen? Auch wir Schweizer sind stolz auf euch und gratulieren euch ganz herzlich. Wir waren natürlich jeden Tag mit euch unterwegs und auch Carine verfolgte mit uns eure Reise, bis sie mit Tony nach Australien flog.
    Weiterhin alles Gute wünschen euch Zimmermanns

  9. Thanks Trish for taking these pictures. This is what we have all been imagining. Their wonderful exploit was a treat for us all. Now back to normal? B

    Don’t put it in a museum. Form a non-profit association and take groups of kids like the Sea Scouts up and down the islands between Florida and Aruba on educational adventures. There is simply no telling what inspiration it will give a young man or woman at a critical time in their life, to push the envelope and think large.
