As always you guys are doing a great job of communicating. I still have my jacket from The Race project, though it is getting a little shopworn and I now wear the new one from Spirit of Mystery. I still remember the beautiful email that Pete's son [ then 9, I think ] wrote to answer all the naysayers saying how proud he was of his Dad for pushing the envelope. Pete is an inspiration to many, but clearly has made the family proud. Best to all, Tim

Have a great sail, and come back safely.
Oh, and make sure that most of the frogs only get to see the stern of Concise 2!!

Hi Pete,

A few days ago in St Malo I wished you all the best for the race and I wish I was there now! Your projects and open style of presentation have been a real inspiration over the years and as a keen sailor also born in 61 it is great to see you back in ocean racing. I hope to get to one of your talks sometime and invite you to Ballard school near Bournemouth.

All the best again for the race.

i hope you win the race. I came to look and go on your boats and had lunch at the mayflower steps, with my class in plymouth. i have your book and my teacher and my classlooked at it and covered up the blood of the fisherman that you saved in the storm. I loved it when i saw you it was does it feel in a storm. I am 7 years old and i did this on my own at home.

Hello Mr. Goss,

I want to wish you all the best for the upcoming route du rhum. I am French, and remember that you risked it all to save one of my compatriots some years back. For that, and for your tenacity in promoting one of the most advanced sailing machines of our century, you have all my support!

I should add that this is the first time I ever send a support message to a competitor, on the web or elsewhere. best of luck to you, and come back safe.

hi pete,
good luck with the race, starting this sunday. i am currently in saint Marlo, unfortunatley i am leaving on friday so i will miss the start :( but i have been down to the boats many times to see what is going on!!
i am a keen salior myself, i sail a cadet and i do some causal yatch racing at Parkstone Yatch Club in poole, Dorset.
i was wandering whether you could advise me in how to get involved with doing races such as the 'route du rhum'? i am only 15, however, i very much enjoy sailing and would like to take it to the next step, in the near future!
i hope you have a great race, and i will be following you on your blog!
best regards,
Isabel xx
