Thank all 20 of you for making this very special event possible. Especially Tony Warren for dive marshalling, Cat Wilding for running a Seasearch dive and dive marshalling, Anita for arranging shore cover, Rach for working tirelessly cataloguing, Ben and Dan from the National Trust for organising transportation and camping, Tom Turner from Paramore Productions for recording the event, Phillip Hyden for his upcoming event blog, John Kent for being a great buddy, Alex Brinnen for the event T shirt and man BBQ skills, and Guillermo Alvarez from Rebel Brewery for his awesome beer and bonfire quality control.
