After a few quiet days, Antigua eagerly awaits the arrival of The Cranial Quest tomorrow! The American pair have less than 50NM left to row, and we expect to see them at about lunch time (GMT) tomorrow. Keep an eye on their progress on their Facebook page.
Now, Callum of Waterbabies Row may not have come first in the race, but we’re pretty certain he’s won the TWAC beard competition! You can check out his bushy voyage on Facebook, and find out a little more about his race progress too. With less than 100NM to row, Callum is expected to be arriving on Wednesday.
If this year’s race has taught us anything, it’s that anybody can achieve greatness. It’s not just the fantastic all-amputee team Row2Recovery that have set the standard, but also Yorkshire Rows, 4 (extra)ordinary Mum’s who took up rowing as a hobby and struck up a lasting friendship with each other. They remain at sea, and although they’re now hand-steering due to some technical issues on board, with less than 500NM left to row they’re fantasizing about burgers and fries, ice cream, fresh fruit and spag bol. Bit of a theme there, don’t you think?
An Ocean Tide has slowed the Thrift Energy boys down a little in the last few days. They’d rowed South in the hope of missing it, but the ocean had other ideas and followed them. On a positive note, they’ve broken the 500NM barrier also, and expect to arrive some time next week. Keep rowing, guys!
