Adrian celebrated Christmas 2005 at sea: This will certianly be the most unusual Christmas I ever spend, not least because I cannot see another living soul. I passed close to a number of ships during the night but have now moved east of the shipping lanes. The gift from Louise and my two sons revealed a hot water bottle in anticipation of the Arctic ice!. Kemp Sails, one of the sponsors also provided an outstanding present – a Christmas pudding and a small bottle of Champagne, which is trailing off the back of the boat to cool down. More exquisitely, a packet of ten cigarettes and a copy of Maxim magazine! I am now considering whether to stop in at Rio!!
I want to wish all supporters and sponsors of the Alpha Global Expedition a Happy Christmas and a successful and fulfilling New Year. Adrian Flanagan aboard Barrabas
