Hayling Yacht Company in Mill Rythe Hayling Island have been generous enough to offer a fantastic service in craning the boat ready for her final re-fit. Hayling offer a wide range of services from friendly knowledgeable people, I highly recommend using Hayling for any boat yard needs!
Seateach have been our local chandlery since I started sailing and have kindly helped out with the re-fit of the boat. Stuart and Ian the owners are two genuine people who are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable, they are based in Emsworth at 2a Station Approach.
Visit My Harbour have supplied me with a amazing Sea Clear DVD and have lent the trip a Tough-book and GPS dongle to run it with, SeaClear offers over 400 full sized charts (800+chart/chartlets), offering full coverage at all scales, and running in SeaClear the established and respected PC navigation program. Connect a GPS and you will be navigating your boat using this package.
Hyde Sails supplied the excellent genoa and fully battened main that powers Danera. Thanks for the donation of one of their extremely high quality spinnaker snuffers which is a must for short-handed sailing
Intouch Business provides online business applications to a wide variety of organisations including Hyde Sails. Intouch provided support in internet campaign, thanks to Phil Selley and my Dad!
Solo Offshore Racing are a fantastic friendly group of Solo sailors who put on races around the South, Jerry Freeman one of the directors has provided me with priceless information through his extensive experience, he has also generously provided the trip with a tracker. Any solo sailor should have a go at racing with SORC especially any keen young sailors!
Mike Saqui is a successful single handed racer whom I have got to know through the SORC races, he is also the owner of The Penny Farthing Hotel in Lyndhurst, he has loaned me an essential back up Raymarine St1000, as well as contributing to the running costs of the trip. If you're ever in Lyndhurst pop in to say hi!
Thanks to Brooks and Gatehouse for their supply of a spare anemometer and various goodies!
Thanks to the Chichester-based Round Britain sailors - the Fishers for their kindness and generosity lending UK charts and a freshly serviced liferaft (hopefully never to be used...)
