Northern Campaign Side Effects
Well Northern Campaign 2014 has bought out a period of great personal growth for me, and the funny thing is it wasn't about me! It was supposed to be about enriching the lives of kids! But as a curious side effect I have grown a lot as a human and this is not just me. It is a side effect of a lot of people who embark on this journey year after year.  I feel (as does the likes of Dalai Lama) that when one does selfless service to others less fortunate than oneself, one cannot help but to benefit. The cosmic karma maybe!Read full story

Northern Campaign 2014
Today I had a beautiful little boy who was profoundly deaf as well as autistic who touched my heart and my soul. He sat on the rail watching the water and all it's hues of colours. Then he discovered my hands were different because I had sailing gloves on. He spent the best part of 40 minutes studying and feeling the difference between the the different fabrics on them. I wear these gloves everyday and haven't really taken much notice but today I did!Read full story

Kids from local Southport Schools had a fantastic time on board faceboat. They splashed their feet in the water and enjoyed watching a pod of dolphins swim up to their side of the boat.Read full story

Kristi has posted her thoughts for today
Well the Northern Campaign preparations are going well, The hull had a scrape back so we should really slip through the water well. Mark and I were able to achieve a lot today, and even had time to be interviewed for a major newspaper which will be on the news stands tomorrow, Kim and Gordon have moved their stuff to the boat and the entire crew will be on to head to sea by approx 10 am tomorrow. The weather will be about 20-30 kts from the South West. We anticipate a fast ride up to Southport with an estimated ETA Saturday 2 pm ( ish)
