  • Description


    PRESS CONFERENCE; REPORTERS; ROSE SPEAKING (SOF).



    TRANSCRIPT: QUESTION: ARE YOU LIKELY TO UNDERTAKE ANOTHER LONG SOLO VOYAGE?



    ROSE: THAT'S A DIFFICULT QUESTION TO ANSWER AT THE MOMENT. AT THE MOMENT I DON'T HAVE ANY IDEAS OR PLANS FOR ANY FURTHER ACTIVITIES IN THAT DIRECTION, BUT, WHO KNOWS, THIS BUG GETS INTO ONES' BLOOD, AND WHO KNOWS WHAT CAN HAPPEN IN THE NEXT YEAR OR TWO. BUT AT THE MOMENT I FEEL THAT I'VE DONE ENOUGH FOR A YEAR OR SO, AND I OWE THIS TO MY WIFE. THAT IS ALL THERE IS TO IT. I DON'T FEEL THAT I CAN GO ON DOING THIS SORT OF THING AT THE MOMENT.
