Congratulations from the across the sea and the ocean are flooding in for Row Like A Girl, who yesterday achieved the fastest female Atlantic Ocean crossing.  So what did Lauren, Bella, Gee and Olivia do the next morning, having spent the last 40 days rowing arduously for 2 hours on, 2 hours off?  They were up at 03:30 in the morning preparing for an interview, looking refreshed and still smiling while the rest of Antigua was fast asleep.  They need a big round of applause, that must have been very hard.

Sean and Andy from Thrift Energy say “Hats off to the girls” (Row like a girl) they earned it.” They’re obviously well impressed with them. They said “We will continue to focus on our finish. We can almost smell Antigua.”    In one of their blogs they called themselves the Unluckiest Team Ever (their brightest moment when Andy got hit by a flying fish)   but they are determined and will not stop.

Meanwhile All Beans No Monkeys who are about 230NM away from Antigua sent their best.  They also took the time to thank everyone who has sponsored  and supported them on their journey including all those that have read their blogs, sent messages, donated and  in their words “showed us love-you all ROCK!  For the heart felt and “soppy” messages click here.   Overall All Beans No Monkeys seem to be picking up speed, even though the kelp is interrupting their rowing. They are looking forward to seeing more wildlife as they cross shallower shores.

And finally food appears to be the current subject for a few teams.  Coventry Five-O are down to their last bar of chocolate.   And Team Hesco are struggling with the taste of their meals so this has become their main topic of conversation, they even had a competition to find out what was the best.  For the results click here.

Every message our teams receive helps push them towards their goal.  So please keep sending them.
