The Quote

September 11, 2008 5.10 am

Jack’s just excitedly shown me a text sent from our mate Chris.  It’s great quote that encapsulates, to an 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.

Winston Churchill

About Jack Sinclair

Before we set off on this adventure and test, and because we probably won’t be able to update for a few days, I thought it might be fitting to say a couple of words about Jack after seeing how hard he has worked and how much he has sacrificed for this past year to even contemplate this ride:

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

Cheers and wish us a strong wind at our backs!
