5500Km Atlantic rowing race
Canary Islands - Antigua
5 Jan 2010 - SOLO - 21 Mar 2010
11 Weeks "MAN-ALEEN!"


Peter van Kets a motivational speaker, and doing things like, taking a summer stroll to the South-Pole, or crossing the Atlantic in a rowing boat the size of a caravan, revitalises his mind and energises his sole. Then its back to work, inspiring others with his strenghth and courage. He is naturally an example of human ability, determination and accomplishment. And whilst we can't all do the Atlantic (leave is often a problem at that time of year), we do all subscribe to unbelievable achievement - super human - matrix, you name it. And talking to Pete does inspire one to achieve and find success.

Pete's charity, the Carel du Toit Centre is a small school for deaf children, based in his home town, East London, and their work extends into rural Transkei too. MangoSMS was used as a fund raiser for the charity to benefit deaf and hearing impaired children.

MangoSMS was used in Pete's charity drive for the duration of the Peter van Kets solo Atlantic crossing to send daily SMS updates of Pete's progress and news to friends, fans, supporters and loved one's.
