A good friend of mine is sailing around the world the "wrong" way as part
of her "Force 12" team in the Global Challenge coming up in October.
This is a seriously gnarly year-long journey; I saw a documentary by a
guy from an org I used to be part of who'd done it a couple of years ago
and it was inspiring, not to mention gory & dangerous.
Force 12 have organised a great looking event happening this week. Here's
``On Thursday 9th September, four of Britains bravest, record breaking
adventurers will come together in an unprecedented gathering to tell
you about their "first time". what it took for them to become the
first ones to conquer the never-before-conquered. Hosted by Rachel
Morgan from Team Force12, the evening will give you the chance to find
out what it takes to take on some of the world's most daring
challenges, be pushed to your limits and survive. All were amateurs,
all were ordinary people living ordinary lives . all achieved
Date: Thursday 9th September 2004 at 7.00pm
Venue: The Royal Geographical Society, 1 Kensington Gore, London, SW7
