Dehydration central…

26 Jan

Whilst the speed has not been as good as the team had wished for overnight, it was great to hear Simon in good form on this morning’s Heart breakfast show with Stuart and Natalie. To hear the reason why he was tied up and chucked over the boat and who he thinks he is in competition with for Rear of the Year  listen to the full interview here.

Mark shared both good and bad news with us in the 29th pod cast:×200.swf?callInView=99916&channelInView=&phlogId=41329&phonecastId=124825.

Good news is that there is only 800 miles left on the monitor and that good weather is predicted to benefit Sara G by coming night. The bad news is that the last few days have been some of the slowest yet, with little wind and swell. The guys are loosing significantly on the World Record daily and unfortunately the batteries on board are not being charged enough due to lack of sun and wind. The crew have had to make a hard decision to switch off the water purification machine and ration both their daily water and food intake as a result. The might of the Atlantic is massive and now is when your support is needed most. Leave your comments below this blog and we’ll make sure Aodhán will see them!

    Aodhan, You’re doing incredibly well, keep it going. Making it across safe and sound would be an incredible achievement. Whether you make it into the record books or not is all down to the weather gods. Enjoy the rest of the journey!!!
