Michael Storer’s shoestring tour of the USA

The PDRacer community and Duckworks have grouped together to collect small amounts of money to put together to bring me to the USA to go to various “messabouts” (messing around in boat weekends) as well as the Intergalactic Championships of the PDRacers in Georgia in October.

Duckworks is collecting and managing the contributions.

The PDR communitiy will host me at different houses and organise lifts between different places as much as possible – a real shoestring tour.

My aim it to pay back people’s generosity by doing anything that they want me to (within reason!!!). So talks, discussions, Q and A, boat setup clinics, sailing lessons, boatbuilding workshops. All is fair game!
