You will need my sat phone number which you can get by emailing me. Although the screen will say 160 chars - I only get the first 108 (...its the usual IT screw up)







It was completely unintentional and unplanned but Gijon will forever be special, the place where I made landfall after my first solo Biscay crossing.

The welcome from the natives will also for ever be etched on my heart.
