Saddle-sore in San Francisco WHILE visiting Canada during Endeavour 90, the round-the-world deployment of the Dartmouth Training Squadron, six cyclists from the destroyer HMS Bristol rode 1,061 miles from Vancouver to San Francisco. The team's intention was to cover the often mountainous terrain in just 10 days, a tough task made even more difficult by bad weather, a strong headwind and knee troubles! Back-up support for the team was provided by a party of OUTs who drove ahead to organ-

ise accommodation and food. The cyclists' arrival at the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco marked the end of one of the stiffest challenges they had ever faced and thanks to sponsorship and donations received en route they raised over £3,000 for their affiliated children's ward at Charing Cross Hospital. Pictured outside Pier 39, in San Francisco, recovering from the 1,061 mile ride are, from left, PO Martin Oatridge, PO Des Fuller, Sub.Lieut. Peter Haggart, LWEM Mark Bowditch, LMet Mick Oliver and MEM Riddle.
Parisian delights for naval escort THE RNR Vessel, Oliver Twist, of HMS President, completed a special escort duty by keeping a watchful eye on the long, and very sore, arm of the law. Their task was to escort a team of Metropolitan Police officers who were rowing a 27ft. Montagu whaler, on loan from HMS Raleigh, from Westminster to Paris in aid of the charity "Fight for Sight".
Keep on running THREE runners from HMS Sultan — CPO Terry Hallett and LMEMS Cart Robson and Andrew O'Sullivan — successfully completed the London Marathon and raised £1,000 for the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association. Capt. Robin Bradley, of HMS Sultan, presented the cheque to Mr Keith May representing the local branch of the association. LREG David Harris, of HMS Brilliant, also took part in the London Marathon and raised E561.63 for the Great Ormond Street Hospital. He pledged £50 of his own money if he didn't complete the 26-mile course in under 4 hrs. and had to "cough up" when he exceeded his time limit by only 1 min.
Alacrity Runners from HMS Alacrity raised £500 for their adopted charity, Greenacres Special School, in a sponsored run/
walk from Southampton to Winchester while 16 members of the ship's company of HMS Coventry took part in a 240mile run from Plymouth to Coventry to raise £2,000 for charities in the Coventry area. A 486-mile marathon tested the stamina of 17 runners from HMS Glasgow when they ran from the Boscowen Centre at HMS Osprey to Yorkhill Hospital for sick children in Glasgow. All money raised will go to the hospital and anyone wishing to make a donation should contact the Supply Officer in HMS Glasgow.
Tropical treat "SHIVER me timbers!" was the cry as "Leading Pirate" Jane Dommershuizen limboed Caribbean-style for charity at HMS Dryad's summer ball. Jane, and other Wrens from the School of Maritime Operations, joined forces with other pirates and natives and a treasure trove of £300 was raised for the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth's annual appeal.
