Solo Sailor Supports ShelterBox...

Since last November, Sam Goodchild has been totally focused on trying to get himself and his boat 'ShelterBox' to the start of the 2013 Solitaire du Figaro.
Sam says "It’s exciting to be here but still a little bit scary and nerve-racking as I don’t want to waste the opportunity. In Figaro racing it can go wrong very quickly; one tactical error, bad boat preparation, bad choices on the boat or sails and you can lose vital miles on the other boats". Read more here.

Hope restored in Pakistan 

Barkat is 80 years old. He and his wife were home in the village of Shand in Pakistan when the 7.8-magnitude earthquake hit the region of Mashkai. 
He and his wife lost everything, their belongings and their house. They were forced to live in the open air as Barkat did not have the energy to build a shelter. They were exposed to the elements as well as insects. They were about to lose hope when the Balochistan Rural Support Programme (BRSP) found them and gave them a ShelterBox disaster relief tent.
