Guess what came throught the mail this afternoon? Lucky red socks from the Sir Peter Blake Trust!

Sir Peter Blake liked to wear his red socks for good luck, and during the America's Cup challenge of 1995 New Zealanders supported the boat by putting on their own red socks.

 Sir Peter Blake was tragically killed on December 5th 2001, and ten  years on the Trust strives to keep his memory, spirit and values alive for future generations of New Zealanders. Red Socks Day is an opportunity to
remember this fallen hero and the contribution he made to New Zealand and our planet, and to re-tell his story for those who were too young to remember.

We'll definitely be wearing our new red socks during the expedition!
