The support crew


The support crew

Andy was a keen supporter of Alan’s round the world power expedition in the ‘Spirit of Cardiff’ and co-skippered a number of legs (including the Panama and Suez canals) in the Raymarine Lively Lady Project.  Andy is a RYA Senior Dinghy and Powerboat Instructor, and helps fundraise and train for the Around & Around project. He’ll be providing all the support he can (ie doing what Alan tells him to do!) for this project and is looking forward to spending some time on board if Alan lets him.

Laura Mearns

Laura built and updates the challenge’s website from the barge she shares with Joe Mearns in Portsmouth. Laura grew up on boats, is a former Rough Guide writer and photographer and is also the author of Himalaya by Bike, published by Trailblazer, which took her about as far from the sea as you can get. She runs Greenrock Ltd together with Joe and is also an expedition medic.
