handed race.


No Barriers – The Neal Petersen Story — 3 Comments

  1. Amazing journey Neil! Totally proud to even know that we shared schools. This is utter determination to encourage everyone to persue their dream and whilst they are dreaming, to feel that dream where the the outcome is inevitable!

    Extreme passion is what I appreciated about your video and journey, well done, what a good few proud moments for you!

  2. Wow … didn’t know this and so proud of him. Also an ex-Livingstonian now living overseas so very proud of sharing same school with him. Thank you for sharing and making my day

  3. Hi Neal ! So awesome to be reminded once again of your achievement. I’m so proud to be able to say that we not only shared the same high school Livingstone together but also the same primary school. I can still vividly remember your first day at Rosmead Primary. The boy with the crutch who always entertained us with his stories of the sea. Who would’ve thought at the time it would become a reality! Absolutely brilliant and so inspiring to know that one’s dreams can come true..! I was also honoured to be one of the first South Africans to set foot on your yacht in Cape Town when you arrived here as part of your around the world race…I still have the video footage !!f All the best my friend…Michael
