Dun­blane has an­other gem in brave rower Elaine

Stirling Observer - - SCHOOL NEWS -

Dun­blane has found an­other gem namely Elaine Ho­p­ley.

The achieve­ment of Elaine on this Talisker Whisky At­lantic Chal­lenge for her skills, courage and brav­ery would be hard to match.

I have been in this area of the At­lantic sev­eral times over the years and I can as­sure the pub­lic that this is not a sail in a mill pond. The gales, high seas can only be de­scribed as atro­cious and that is sail­ing on a ship. In a row­ing boat it must be fright­en­ing and life threat­en­ing.

The peo­ple of the UK should all be very proud of Elaine’s achieve­ment.

Lastly, I think the Stir­ling Ob­server de­serves a men­tion for the up­dated news to the read­ers about the jour­ney. Alex McLaren, Burn­green, Kip­pen
