We went on board Elsi Arrub when moored up next to her at Pendennis + had the pleasure of meeting Andrew. Waw what a trip ! So glad to see them underway + wish them fair winds. Will be watching progress + looking forward to being part of the welcoming party in Falmouth next November…..or December. God speed.

Fabulous log book Andrew. I feel as if I am sailing with you. It has taken me a while to get around to writing to you, but here I am at last with an early wish of Happy Christmas. Lovely to think of you sailing in relatively warm waters for a few days. I don’t know the first thing about sailing around the world but I imagine you are heading towards a fairly cold southern spell around The Cape of Good Hope. I hope you get fair winds and calm seas. The nights must feel very long and arduous but I love your piece about adjusting the sails in the pale moonlight that you describe in your log of 13th December. Great to have such a passion for your journey. Very inspiring. Thank you for sharing the voyage with us.
With admiration, and warm friendship,
George & Hilary (Cozy in a house in London but enjoying the thrill of your trip.)

Good to see you passing where many Shetlanders have passed before. I remember my uncles Tommie & Woolie, Gorie, Bressay, talking about their visits to Rio on the way home from the whaling: I’m sure, as a child, I got the abbreviated version! We have Anglican Franciscan Brothers in Sao Paulo – very close to your course. Peace and all good for 2014. Ruth.

By Karen Forbes Sat Jan 4th 2014 at 8:59 pm  

Hi Andrew, It’s been a long long time since the athletics club in Scalloway 🙂 Do you remember me? I want to wish you all the best in your trip and I’ll keep an eye on where you are. Maybe you will manage a run to my island sometime for a cup o tae? Isle Of Coll on the West coast :-)and give me a crash course in sailing! Anyway all the best and have a Happy New Year. x

By Sue Gray (Bisset) Sun Jan 5th 2014 at 1:33 am  

Hello Andrew,
I am Rob Bisset’s niece and I live in Melbourne, Australia. My husband Bruce and I met you when we came to Burra years ago. We stayed with John and Marion.
We will keep a track of you on your Blog and look forward to seeing you if you land in Melbourne.
Wishing you safe travels! Sue and Bruce

By Peter Bardell Mon Jan 6th 2014 at 12:43 pm  

Happy New Year and Happy Birthday Andrew.
Your trip are your blog are outstanding. Thank you for keeping the communications daily. I often think about you taking daily sextant sights and working out your daily position. Best wishes.

By Steve & P@ Weir Sun Jan 19th 2014 at 11:56 am  

Hi Andrew,
Great to see the good progress you are making.
I know what you mean about downing the soft drinks before they rust or wear out & spill into the bilges. It would be disappointing to reach for them later to find they were all empty.
I hope you go well down the coast.
Cheers
Steve

By Hamish Fraser Mon Feb 10th 2014 at 6:18 pm  

Andrew,
It is 18.15hours (pm) here
I am a friend of Peter & Christine Johnson, Peter told me today of your voyage ! Christine ne. Leask was from Bridge End Burra
I have been friends with Peter & Christine for “ever” I have been in the shop at Hamnavoe many times and first came there with Hansy Smith in the Tirrick ! A few years ago. Anyway enough of that.
I was taught rudimentary sailing by a Whalsa man by the name of Willy Simpson in the traditional Shetland Model. Which he kept in the old harbour where the St Clair docked, which will give away my age !!
I am just e-mailing you my encouragement with your “trip” around the world. !!!
There was a time when I wanted Walter Duncan to build me a vessel capable of what you are doing but other forses intervened.
That is why I am congratulating you and encouraging you !!
God Bless you in this endeavour !
Have fair winds & safe sailing.

Hamish Fraser

Godspeed Andrew, keep slogging on and you will make it! We are watching you every day and your voyage is thrilling us.
Bob and Bear from Fire Hawk in Falmouth.

By Chris Bunyan Thu Mar 6th 2014 at 9:08 pm  

It might be slow and frustrating but you are making progress – and there are hundreds and probably thousands of folk following your efforts and willing you on your way. Here’s hoping for some favourable weather. Best wishes, Chris

By Ian jamieson Sat Mar 8th 2014 at 10:01 pm  

Sorry to hear the unfortunate news. Glad to hear Andrew is safe and well. Ian and Shirley in Glasgow.

By Peter Harmer Mon Mar 10th 2014 at 7:00 pm  

S6 Northfield Academy pupils were very sorry to hear that Andrew had to give up his attempt to sail around the world because of Elsi’s mast breaking. They were however, pleased and really happy to learn that he is safe and well. Their hope and we are sure Andrew’s, is the possibility of getting Elsi back safely although they are aware this will be dependent on the support and help in the local area as well as the weather in that region. Please pass on our regards to Andrew and let him know we are all thinking of him and that he well be a huge miss every morning during registration.
