Well, at times I felt like this day would never come. On other days I didn’t want it to come. The last 26 days have been some of the most challenging of my life in so many different ways. I’m now on terra firma after a spectacular finish crossing the line just 2 minutes ahead of ichorcoal after 5,200 miles of sailing. Just wow. The icing on the cake had to be the surprise air display my dad put on as we crossed the line.
Once the dust has settled (read: a layer of skin has peeled and my hair has been dealt with) I shall be back with the highs and lows of the Southern Ocean.
For now it’s bed time and woe betide anyone that tries to wake me up at 4 am this morning.
