Hello all, welcome to our second newsletter, designed to track our progress towards competing in the 2009 Indian Ocean Race.

We are excited to announce that our boat launch is being held at the Captains Club Hotel in Christchurch, Dorset on Saturday 23rd August. Superbly located in the heart of Christchurch, the Captain’s Club Hotel is positioned on the banks of the River Stour at Christchurch Quay.

There will be a champagne reception and buffet on the terrace whilst a band and special guests provide entertainment. Please put the date in your diary and contact us to purchase your ticket.

Thanks to Matt Young, we now have a logo that we are going to use on all our publications and for our sponsored clothing. No its not a feather!

April saw the first of 4 Six-a-side football tournaments held at K2 leisure centre Crawley. The day was a great success raising over £1200. 10 teams participated. The winning team Chelsea CITC took the trophy home and won a corporate membership to Spearmint Rhinos worth over £1000! Well done boys. Tom (Duff) was top goal scorer winning a golden boot.
We are working alongside Orchid, the only UK registered charity that focuses entirely on the male-specific cancers; prostate, penile and testicular. They fund medical research and promote awareness about these cancers.

Once we have covered our expenses we will use all additional funds to support Orchid. Before this time we will help to promote awareness of the male cancers, this is crucial in helping to recognise signs of the cancers - a simple self check can identify early signs of testicular cancer; which if caught early is 98% treatable.

To find out more about Orchid and the male cancers, or how you can help to raise funds and promote awareness to help fight male cancer please visit their website.

The Boat:    Rossiter Yachts

having seen the boat a few days ago down at Rossiter Yachts, progress is good and it should be out of the mould within the next couple of weeks. Hatches and other design aspects have been chosen and next, the boat kitted out with all the equipment we need.
We are extremely pleased to have another two Silver package sponsors this month, the first being The Great Branding Company - who provide a one stop shop for your promotional clothing, work wear and leisure wear. They have generously offered to supply us with branded performance clothing and corporate clothing for selected events.

More recently, we have just confirmed our 4th silver sponsor,
The Captains Club Hotel
, of Christchurch, Dorset. As mentioned above they will be hosting our boat launch on Saturday 23rd August. They have kindly donated as a raffle prize, a weekend away at the hotel.

The next Six-a-side football tournament will be held at the K2 leisure centre, Crawley on Sunday 22nd June, for an application form to enter a team click here or visit the events page on the website. 

We have been sailing J-boats with the Jeez-Louise squad for the last few months, getting our sea legs and learning as much as we can about life at sea. Last weekend was the J-cup at Hamble. We would like to thank the Guys for all their support and having us on board.
