It will be a long, busy day, the key to stay calm, keep focused and above all ensure I enjoy myself and do the best I can. If at the end of the race I know I have put everything I possibly could in and have left nothing in the tank, I could not have done much more. If I can do that I shall be :o)
Good luck to all those doing the DW race this weekend both the non stop and the four day event. Especially good luck to Mags Dilai, Caroline Jones, Alison Chimel, Sarah Millest - you are all super tough cookies in my book. May your support crews look after you and feed you at the right times hehe. Paddle hard and enjoy every moment. I will be following your progress over the next few days. DW is a very tough race 125 miles and over 70 portages in a boat is no mean feat and one you need a lot of mental toughness for!
