PRESS RELEASE - Pendovey Swift Crosses the Finish Line @ 10.13 UTC 21st March 2010
There was cause for a double celebration as Simon also turned 39 yesterday - what a way to spend his birthday. Upon making land they were reunited with family and friends having spent over 2 months at sea.
For much of the race they were leading their fire fighting colleagues on board Spirit of MA and were looking to be the first fire fighters to cross the ocean but sadly Neil and Dean did end up beating them by just under 1 day. However, take nothing away from the fantastic result they have had in completing this race.
Congratulations Mike and Simon on an incredible feat.
