1,000 miles! Boom!

14 Jan

To start this Saturday’s message: the crew has passed the 1,000 mile mark!! And rowing over 1,000 miles has never looked this great:

Listening to Mark’s latest pod cast, it’s clear that the guys did have a bout of trade winds to back them up last night. Wahoo! But unfortunately today’s conditions weren’t that amazing. The forecasts are good and those winds are really needed for the crew to consolidate their fast pace. They are still on course to break the World Record after all, so let’s just  all believe the forecasts for a change.

Mark also spoke of the highs and lows the crew are experiencing: the beautiful night skies filled with stars, seeing some of nature’s intriguing wild life, the magic of being in a big empty space alone with your thoughts and seeing sunsets on endless horizons. Not bad hey? You’d think…..but then on the other hand he did add that everyone is on dialy pain killers and cooking in the heat.
