The hunt for sponsorship starts all over again as I aim for the 2015 Mini Transat!! But I am lucky to have a great team of support from around the world. It’s all thanks to my sponsors that I can continue  to chase the dream!! Thanks also to everyone who contirbuted on my crowdfunding site!

Thanks to the leading rope manufacturers in the southern hemisphere, Donaghys and Southern Ropes 635 is getting all decked out in nice new shiny rope! It’s good to know that the strings that make all the action happen on board are the best quality and are going to last the distance!







I am very excited to announce that Wichard and Profurl will again be joining me in my campaign. Thanks to their support in 2013 I am still alive. If I had not been attached to 785 by my Wichard tether I am sure I would not have been found. And thanks to the OSR tethers special quick release clip, I was able to detach at the right moment even when the tether was under pressure!! So I am very lucky and proud to be again supported by Wichard. As well as brilliant safety equipment Wichard make high quality marine hardware which I can’t wait to put on 635. Profurl is the leading manufacturer of furlers which I am looking forward to putting to use during the transat! Light, well made and reliable, exactly what I need on a mini!


http://infinitynautique.com/ is part of Infinity Chantier Naval Le Borgne which was a major sponsor in 2013 who has again come on board to help me get lots of little bit and bobs I need including safety kit, SSB, epoxy etc. I am very thankful to have their support and can recommend the yard in the beautifull Gulf de Morbihan.

Australian design and made BarzOptics is leading the way in eye wear, especially for water sports. From goggles to sunglasses, prescription or polarised they do it. They even float! I am lucky to have Barz looking after my eyes as I take on the Mini Transat!






Amanda Grey is a English learning centre just outside Lorient in Brittany, France. It specialises in tailored adult learning. If you are serious about learning functional English it is the place to go! I wish there was French school like it!
