Torch Relay

Joined a group of others to see the Olympic Torch run(walk!) up College Way and hand over to another runner . Looking  at the live coverage no body seems to carry the flame for very long. An awful lot of accompanying police bikes and support vehicles.

Ten Tors 2012

Team Captain and Navigator for the Sea Cadets' 35 mile team

The starting guns have just been fired.

Little Bo Peep and his 5 sheep!

Medal presentation.

Phil and I enjoyed a very sunny weekend at Okehampton Camp in support of the three Dartmouth Ten Tors teams. There were 2 teams who completed 35 miles and 1 who completed 45 miles.Much exhaustion and many blisters ensued but it was a huge achievement by the young people and a great privilege to see it close up.
Julia is already planning to do the 45 next year!
