Cut and paste from Earthrace's website,

Colin Walker
Colin Walker is a biodiesel expert based in the UK, and is assisting Earthrace with sourcing fuel and sponsorships in the European and Asian areas

I think he might be legit guys.

You guys are blowing up for no reason. Where do you get that hotmail.co.uk isn't a valid address? I just googled the f_cking thing and it comes up ok. Besides, the guy put the valid www.earthrace.net address up. I don't "think" it's a scam. Look it up, Microsoft owns "hotmail.co.uk"...sheesh

Earthrace will take help from anybody and everybody. They're offering a 15% cut for anybody who brings them a paying passenger. Maybe this Colin Walker is just somebody looking for a cut, but still helping the big picture. (EDIT: looks like he's legit after all)
I've been following it since middle of last year. Before a certain turn of events I was going to buy a seat on the Panama Canal leg. Sh!t happens and I couldn't put the money there. If I win the lottery I'd buy the whole rest of the trip.

If you REALLY want to help, go on their website and buy a t-shirt, poster, DVD, or follow the list of "7 ways to help Earthrace".

Regardless of whether you give two sh!ts about biodiesel, or the race, or whatever, that boat is just [email protected] I wish I was there. I'd love to be on the leg riding through the Suez Canal and across the Med.

if it was legit..he would have asked you to go through propper channels

to keep the money safe
it may be wise to send out the official make a donation paypal link and re ring your friends

sadly they play on our trust in fellow man

i've been a 'looker' for a while but felt it was needed to post on this topic
