Just a small note to say Happy New Year! Whether you're watching the silver ball fall in Times Square or watching the sun come up on a beach on the east coast of NZ, or indeed anywhere in between, I hope that 2017 is the year that you're able to achieve your goals, set new scarier ones and have a great time along the way. The start of this edition of the Vendee Globe meant that 2016 was a red letter year, a goal that I aimed at for a long long time and now as I slip quietly through the greyscale of the southern ocean, I'm busy coming up with new projects and adventures to share with my friends and family. Never stop dreaming, or better yet, goal setting! I wish you all the best with the festivities and for the coming year.
