Dunblane has another gem in brave rower Elaine
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
