ah shep, my very first bunk buddy on the race. so thoughtful and easy to get on with. the downside to sharing a tiny space with you, you lovely man of course was that we weren't on the same watch, but it didn't matter. by rio we were great pals. when you arrived back on the boat in leg 4 it was like you'd never left. every time I went up the rig (a lot on the short sydney-hobart it turned out) you were looking out for me on the deck. you put up a hell of a fight mate. I miss you xx

You will be missed Shep. I was one of the lucky ones to be coached and mentored by you. Thankyou for showing me how to dribble a basketball and being patient with me as a junior player. I'll treasure your coaching books forever and one day, I'll pass them on to the right person just like you wanted. Love you Shep xx

Uncle Shep! My heart aches knowing that you’re not earthside any more. You’ve been a source of light and guidance to me and so many people. My teenage years were not the best but I am so thankful that you were around to give me a stern word when mum needed it. You’ve been an amazing friend and uncle figure to me. I’ll never forget you and the wonderful memories that we made xx

Rest easy!
