When we got to St Marys, the tide was on its way out, there was a little bit of moving to do as we had to get all the right kit and people to where they needed to be. Tarryn, Chloe, Dan and I stayed onboard the Sulis and watched a movie to chill-out before we set off. Tom Butler and Mark Slater were setting off as we were getting the last bits of from the boat to St Marys, and before I knew it we where off.
I was going to be on my own in the rib following the girls, so with no charts or GPS and just a Compass we set off for Sennen and a world record. Keeping the Girls around a heading of 080° we where steaming along, keeping half an eye open for the Sulis which was with Tom and Mark. After about 45mins they came into sight, by an hour and a half we had passed them. At this point I broke off from the girls to go and have a check in with the Sulis, make sure the radio channels where working and everything was OK as they where the on water control.
As soon as we landed I was sent back out to pick up the camera crew, by now the rib was runningon fumes so after swapping tanks I headed back out. The swell had picked up loads by now and my little rib was fighting to get out. I found the camera guys on the Dolly P about 2miles off shore. I picked them up and sped back to Sennen to the dry land. We arrived in just as Glenn was coming through. The men’s double ski had already landed. Now with just sup and paddleboard left out I handed the rib over to Glenn, 6 hours straight navigating open sea in a 3m rib and I was shattered.
Mark was next in, after his nightmare paddle over the last couple of kms and finally Tom arrived… We were all home safe, Glenn’s dream had come true.
