COPY OF A LETTER RECEIVED BY B&Q CUSTOMER SERVICES DEPARTMENT


Dear Sir/Madam

My congratulations to you on getting a yacht to leave the UK
on 28th November 2004, sail 27,354 miles around the world
and arrive back 72 days later.

Could you please let me know when the kitchen I ordered 96
days ago will be arriving from your warehouse 13 miles away?

Yours Sincerely

John Roberts

Everyone at Falmouth did their best to offer Ellen a ‘proper Cornish’ welcome home after such an outstanding achievement.  When she was on the stage at the Maritime Museum and later at the press conference it was amazing how she could go from 71 days at sea to answering questions with consummate professionalism in both English and French.

Some people went to look at the boat at about 8pm that evening and she was still there doing interviews for French Television!

Calling all bookies! How many times is THIS mail going to travel around the world??

(twice here on this forum already, and I haven't checked the others yet )

Anyway, we know how Ellen trained:

Go to any B&Q branch in the land, ask for some item not stocked there and they'll send you to the nearest town. E.g. B&Q Shoreham (my local) sends us to Worthing, Worthing to Brighton, Brighton to Eastbourne, you're off around Britain in no time ...  

Apologies to all B&Q lovers out there - get a life!

The BBC just redeemed themselves...A fantastic programme just finished which not only showed all the troubles she had, but also that Ellen has a sense of humour, which made her seem a little less driven! Only a little mind...Where does she get the energy from - I'm tired after an hour racing on a puddle!
