food and sleep ,the crew were all feeling a bit low. Shortly after this shot
Pete went down, Dave felt off and Mike was contemplating the next steak! It
was only days later that Pete started questioning everything.
Yesterday I had 98 emails in and 87 out, so another crazy day behind the
screen getting the word out about looking for new crew. The plan now is that
the doors are open and people are thinking about it.Have they got what it
takes? Can they afford it? Will they be able to face the reality of finding
out who they are for the very first time, will they regret it if they don't
We will have it all sorted by the International launch in Sydney on April
the 8th. We all then fly to Tonga to start final preps and what will be two
weeks of training before setting off. So now is your chance. You must be
committed though, as it will be tough. For your interest that makes 9 the
number of people in the last 12 months, who have been offered the chance to
sail on Talisker Bounty Boat and then changed their mind, for what ever
reason...where will it end?
That is the beauty of this Blog..you have to check back for each exciting
episode. I have to tell you there are plenty of comments going around in
Australia at the moment about this crazy little boat about to set of with no
food, toilet paper, sailing gear...and no crew by the look of it. I spoke to
Jessica on Pink Lady about it and she recons you are always better off with
stuffed toys as crew, even though they do not help with the washing up! Not
a problem on TBB.
We will all look back on this as part of the adventure that started 221
years ago..Bligh must be wondering what we are all made of and having a
right chuckle, but he new at the beginning we were all slightly mad for
wanting to do this for fun anyway. I just want to get out there now and get
on with it. Want to come!!!
