This song is about our passage from Eastbourne to Margate via Folkestone, Dover and Ramsgate. Some dramatic moments on these sails including a knock down in 'Satan's Teeth' (crewmember Dan Lane's name for the mouth of Dover harbour). This song is very much about the strength and commitment of all the crew, having learnt to sail a fast and feisty boat in very little time and coped with what, for a novice crew has been some extremely challenging sailing on Collective Spirit with nothing but determination to get the job done and a brilliant and generous humour. Crew, i salute you all. special mentions too for the incredible events put on by both Folkstone and Margate. Amazing work by partners and community alike. Also thanks to the Smiths Court Hotel for letting me make such a racket writing and recording this song. And to Henry the Great Dane, my new best friend in Margate. And finally a further dedication to Damian and Don our guest first mates.
