“…The Task Which Has Been Set Before Us Is Not Above Our Strength….”

Jack’s just excitedly shown me a text sent from our mate Chris.  It’s great quote that encapsulates, to a large extent, what the ride is about:

Sure I am that this day we are masters of our fate, that the task which has been set before us is not above our strength; that its pangs and toils are not beyond our endurance.

As long as we have faith in our own cause and an unconquerable will to win, victory will not be denied us.

About Jack Sinclair

Before we set off on this adventure and test, and after seeing how hard Jack has trained and the sacrifices he has made to even contemplate this journey, I thought it might be fitting to say a couple of words about Jack.  Simple enough words:

Jack is a fine young man who is an absolute credit to himself and the many, many people who have helped him along his way to this point in his life.  My sincere thanks if you’re one of those people.

My only hope with Jack is that he’s half as proud to be my son as I am to be his dad.

Regards and please wish us the wind at our backs!

Brendon Sinclair
