Day 4 – 23/12/2015

General weather update:  Wind turns from S on 25th/26th (some may get headed with a bit of W for northern most crews) then back to a perfect NE/ ENE until at least 04 Jan.

Overall the fleet looks good, outside a few teams suffering from sea-sickness, which is to be expected.

Atlantic Lions are one of those unfortunate teams but their sickness has been balanced out with the amazing wildlife they have already seen. Within just two hours into their journey they were met by dolphins and then later a pod of whales.  To find out more click here Atlantic Lions.

Row Like A Girl continue to head south. But for those still questioning why, they do have a long term plan.  One of the reasons is that the trade winds that push west towards the Caribbean are stronger the more south they go, but there is still more to it.

PURE class

* V Shaped Hull

* Main Accommodation in Stern Cabin
