Weather update: continues from NE and ENE until at least 14 Jan. Possible S for the northern boats on 10/11 now look to be too far north to hit the fleet. Looks good.

‘Commitment’ and ‘determination’ are two words that perfectly describe the Row2Recovery team. The ocean is taking its toll on the rower’s bodies and boat but, even though the team are stretched, they are trying to encourage Paddy to take more rest. Unfortunately, he needs the rest for back strain and not because it’s his birthday today!   But in Nigel’s words “we are absolutely knackered but in good spirits, very drained but we keep on rowing…”   Send your support to the team and birthday wishes to Paddy here.

A week in the lives of Team Wadadli

29/12 Very rough seas right now. Last night around 2am a big wave capped into the boat! But spotted Marlin – thought to be 400lbs.

30/12 Sea good and rowing good. Hot afternoon. Listening to some calypso and soca.

31/12 “Auto pilot came off the ram this morning and we went broadside to the swell. One of the scariest moments so far.” (Atlantic Campaigns  team on the case).  

Happy New Year wishes to all. Great video taken hours before leaving Antigua posted on FB. Key learning, current internet speed to upload HD is about as fast as a row boat! Find it here

More Mahi.   So Mahi and pasta, a change from fish soup. A kind Invite to rowers in their vicinity to join them.

JD did a great job on 91.1FM. Calm and settled and expressed the same of the rest of the team. #‎Antigua.

03/01 Team still in great spirits despite their issues. They were excited to hear that they were rowing faster and faster and looking increasingly more competitive. Well done guys! ‪#‎twac2015

Visit Team Wadadli Facebook and let know that their sacrifice, suffering and pain is for a greater good and is helping their cause.

Team Thrift are suffering from charging and back issues.   Despite this “they’re in high spirits flying along.” They managed to pass a Happy New Year message out and mention the two Marlins who appear to be tracking them. The next day Andy mistook the moon for a big cargo ship! Read their blog for the full update.

All Beans No Monkey managed to post an audio update for New Year’s Day.  It was taken from a training session, but shares the feelings they have now mid Atlantic.   Also very informative with the Monkey Milestones!  Have a listen and hope you enjoy!

Let’s end with a message from Ocean Reunion, who are still in the lead.    “Dear Sea. Thank you for your hospitality over the last few days. Over Christmas you were a miserable git, especially in front of my three friends who had never met you before! You’ve upped your game though! (I knew you would you old dog!) Keep up the good work as we intend to get to where we’re going in good time and the more forgiving you can be will only aid our progress… See you tomorrow. Joe.”       Are they having fun yet….?   Read the full story, with a cliffhanger ending (shark action!) here.
