After more than 5 weeks at sea, Pure Four Atlantic Lions have reached their biggest milestone to date – less than 1000 miles to go. The boys have got a great update for us, including the various ways in which they’ve lightened the boat (to increase speed) and a list of ailments that you can read about at your own risk!

MERLIN’S BEARD! Sorry, we meant Callum’s beard, (Pure Solo Waterbabies Row) seems to be developing at an unstoppable rate. Concerns are growing that it may surpass Harry Potter’s Hagrid if this continues! Beard milestones aside, Callum has now reached the halfway point, and is making great progress to Antigua. He’s received some amazing support from family and friends on Twitter, which has really helped motivate him during some of the difficult moments.

Happy Australia Day, to Shane of Pure Pair Team Hesco! With only 500NM left, give Shane and Theo a G’Day by continuing to send your best wishes of support over on their Facebook page.

Caitlin and George of Concept Pair The Cranial Quest got a nice surprise this morning when they had their first encounter with a non race-related vessel: “Just got passed by a sailboat from France! They were very friendly and asked if we needed food or water.” The pair were very excited!

Atlantic Castaways are starting to encounter “traffic” on the ocean now, having seen a yacht yesterday and a cargo ship that was approaching them from behind – luckily not on a collision course. They’re getting close!
