It has been another record-breaking week in Antigua! Since Sunday, family and friends have been celebrating the arrival of Atlantic Challenge, Atlantic Drifters, Oarsome Buoys, All Beans No Monkeys, Team Beyond, Row to Recovery, Team Hesco and lastly yesterday evening, flares lit as they approached the harbour escaping lightning and a pretty choppy open sea, Atlantic Castaways. It has been a pretty impressive show – the three records broken are: fastest Americans, first all amputee crew and the new youngest pair.

However, as delighted as we are by the return of 10 of our teams, looking out to sea, our support goes to the remaining 16 crews. The conditions haven’t been easy over the past few days, and some of the fleet has spent more time on para-anchor. Despite weariness and pain, the crews are heroically powering on, determined to pull through the nautical miles to reach Antiguan soil and complete their challenge in aid of all of the worthwhile causes. The crews which have arrived already have all said how much it helped motivate them to hear messages of support from family, friends and the general public, so please keep them up on the team pages. Yorkshire Rows have also had Twitter messages of support for Yorkshire Rows have been received from well-known names including TV chef James Martin, Formula 1’s David Coulthard, BBC Look North’s Harry Gration and comedian and writer David Baddiel.
