Weather Update:  In the next 24 hours winds turn back to NE and look strong and ideal for all the fleet to make good progress until at least 8th January.

Rower Update:  This day, last week the 26 teams of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge left sunny La Gomera and headed off into the Atlantic Ocean.  So it is circa 180 hours since their feet touched land or seen another human (outside their team members).  No one at all for the brave solo rowers!  But from previous reports, the beauty of the marine life has helped a lot.

Whilst Row2Recovery are battling the winds and waves of the Atlantic, last night their captain Cayle Royce featured on ITV’s Surprise Surprise Christmas Special where his mum helped share his amazing story. To find out more click here.

Our US friends, Team Beyond have been a bit quiet.   But they have now overcome their seasickness,  a few minor obstacles and are now getting into the rowing rhythm ready to chase down their competition.   They also got a chance to wish their friends, family and followers a Happy Christmas which is great news for all.

Another US team, Latitude 35, are eagerly waiting for the low pressure system to pass so they can continue with speed to Antigua where they can fulfil their Christmas wish “a cheeseburger and cold beer.”

The team’s next mile stone before Antigua is seeing in the New Year at sea.  Please keep the well-wishing messages coming,  it makes a big difference to all of the rowers.   Team pages    @rowtheatlantic #TWAC 2015
