A special thank you to the Commissioner of Police, Rudolph Proctor, and the officers involved with leading the relay to ensure the safety of the participants both on sea and land.

A warm thank you to Curt Harris for his kindness in allowing us to use his boat (Lady Celestia) on the first day of the relay to sail around most of the island, and thank you Sammy and Remoy, for your expert seamanship that made that journey a pleasant and enjoyable one.

Thank you Gerard and team from De Storm sail boat for giving up your morning to relay the baton by sea, and Ernie and Trivon, thank you for giving up your fishing day to assist us with the alighting and boarding of the baton and team at various beaches.

To the children of the island, thank you for behaving and participating in this memorable event which was meant for your enjoyment.  The keenness and happiness shown on your faces made it all worthwhile.
