Nani and crew made it to the Brighton marina yesterday about 1:15 our time. I spoke with Alex around 6:00 and he sounded great. I called back after he and the crew and his sister Eva and her girls had had some dinner and he sounded even better!
I never thought he wouldn't make it, but I was VERY happy yesterday when I saw the tracker dot in the marina and it all kind of sunk in about what a huge accomplishment this is for Alex and the crew.
It has been a long complicated process these past 3 years of planning the trip, preparing the boat, finding a new job, getting the timing right, starting a new job, putting together a new household for us in Bury St. Edmunds, and (the hardest part of) convincing me that it would all work out just fine.......all I can really find to say is: they made it!
