Today has been about friends and family, with the race start becoming ever more imminent (weather permitting, the teams will depart in just three days).  With the majority of boats – and rowers – primed and ready to go, several members of the fleet have taken time today to be with their loved ones: in the run up to the official race leaving party tonight.

However there have still been some teams out on the water – enjoying the sunshine and taking the opportunity to harden up their hands and reduce the sea sickness.  Several of the teams are now looking forward to the departure – chomping at the bit to get out on the water and begin the adventure of a lifetime.

See here for a taster of how the preparation has been progressing and an insight into the mentality of these intrepid rowers:  http://bit.ly/1ILPXIh
