Christmas already? 2011 will be more interesting…

I’m always hit with waves of disappointment as September ends and already there are Christmas things in the shops. But this year, I have something rather more exciting to look forward to, even though it’s just beyond Christmas and New Year.

For a start, my powerboating buddy Alan Priddy is going to be one of the celebrity speakers at the 2011 London Boat Show, along with round the world yachtsman Mike Golding OBE. Mike is going to be talking about his next attempt at the Vendee Globe 2012. Alan will be talking about something which will be happening rather sooner. I’m pleased and indeed a teensy bit proud inasmuch as the publicity poster for Alan’s talks will be based on one of my photographs.

An awful lot has been going on in recent months with regard to the next attempt at cracking the round the world powerboat record. Nothing that can be revealed officially, although I can tantalise you with the prospect that we have an extra crew member on board at the behest of the BBC who will without doubt be extremely worthwhile, and whom I predict will guarantee us blanket media coverage worldwide.

How? Well, I guess you’ll just have to keep watching this space…
