Ireland Ahoy!

It’s a hard life, out on the Irish Sea, eating a Jack Daniels glazed burger with sweet potato fries (courtesy of Stena Line), trying not to spill red wine on my bright new RNLI fundraising cycling Jersey.
But not as hard as it must be in a Lifeboat, trying to rescue the crew of a stricken trawler or leisure craft. Hats off to the 237 crews around the entire coastline of the UK and ROI. The vast majority are volunteers, totally dependant upon voluntary contributions to fund their training and all their kit, from yellow wellies to a state-of-the-art all-weather Lifeboat.
I now look forward to meeting more of these crew members from the 45 Lifeboat Stations around the beautiful Emerald Isle, now on my horizon.20170411_150936(0)

    Good to see the relaunch of the electronic cycling epistle. Must be calm for you to be eating upon the Irish Sea. Good luck for the first leg. Hope to see you over there with Phil soonish.
