Join us in Supporting this Adventure and celebrating Chris in his next ocean odyssey. Jacques Cousteau said, "When one man, for whatever reason, has the opportunity to lead an extraordinary life, he has no right to keep it to himself." And Chris generously wants to share this piece of his life with you as his friends, sponsors and supporters. Thanks will be acknowledged in a future book, through intermittent web updates and blogs during the trip, through a special gathering of friends and supporters once the trip is completed, and in other ways still to be determined. Please join us in supporting something truly different. Our immediate fundraising target is $15,000. Sponsors and supporters will be acknowledged as follows (and we are open to your suggestions too.)
The Cost for an endeavor like this is big on many levels - shipping the boat, equipping it and Chris, getting Chris to Scotland and back from Iceland, provisions, supplies, electronics and much more. It takes immense and careful preparation, rigorous training, determination, and the imagination, vision and courage to undertake it in the first place. Chris is one-of-a kind. His endeavors are unique.
