The sun is still shining but the wind has certainly been picking up in La Gomera.  With the race delay rowers have been swiftly running out of clean clothes – so laundry has certainly been a focus area for the fleet today!  Along with continued tinkering on the boats, many have been exploring the island – including brisk walks in the beautiful & lush mountains surrounding the port and trips up for a lazy lunch to the Parador Hotel, which gives a fantastic views of the port. 

Some boats did venture out into the choppy waters, including Sogno Atlantico and Team Hesco, but most were finally allowing themselves to relax and re-charge before the big day.  As it stands the weather is still looking good for a swift start this weekend – although this is not guaranteed.  While you wait for the start make sure to check out the twitter page @rowtheatlantic where we will be posting small videos and photos of the teams throughout the race.
