2018 Solo Tasman Yacht Challenge - SOLDIER ON

Once again as I did in 2014, I have elected to raise awareness of the work being done by Soldier On to underpin my second Solo Tasman Yacht Challenge in April 2018. In 2014 we successfully raised over $3600.00 so in 2018 I would like to shoot for $5000.00. Together we can make a difference.

2018 will be a very busy year....which is not  bad thing! Between family catch-ups, I will be head down bum up settling back into the Aussie lifestyle, a new job and re-commissioning Rogue Wave from storage to make her ready for our delivery to New Zealand in March 2018.

So thought it prudent to start the fundraising now to lessen the impact. Below is the link to my fundraising page on the Soldier On website and in advance, I thank you kindly for your support in helping those that keep this country safe.

An event such as the Solo Tasman take years of planning and preparation prior to actual execution and getting to the start line is an achievement in its own right. However I am proud to say that I am completely self funded and supported by my family as I spend their inheritance!

All donations raised go to Soldier On.

If you are still in the states I'm looking for a Dh crew to do the Stamford YC Vineyard Race on my Pearson 37 - very similar to Roage Wave - which I'm setting up for DH racing.

The race starts on Friday of the Labor Day weekend 9/1/17

Hi Mike,
Thanks for your generous offer. I checked the race web site and it looks to be a cracker of a race. Unfortunately I will be in Australia on duty travel, however I do have a Canadian Air Force colleague I work with who may be available if you would like his contact details. He has his own Mirage 25 he trucked down from Ottawa on posting and he DH with his wife in races on the Potomac. He has done a lot of lake, Halifax and St Pierre and Miquelon races may be a good fit. Good luck in the race.
