Day 32

Final blog for a week, sorry it's short but rowing must come first

Yesterday was by far the hottest day we have had.  As Jonny and I came out of our cabins for the 16:00 watch we looked drained. Jonny had sweat dripping from his eye balls and looked as though he had spent the last 2 hours of his off watch being interrogated. There was only one thing for it. A quick dip in the ogin, a scrape of the underside and back to business.

The end is in sight and with hopefully under 2 weeks remaining I have decided to use my off time to either sleep or row. So the blogging will have to come to an end for now. We have picked up the pace and are giving it everything we have left in the tank.

Not much changes here onboard. Andy Williams is still wandering around as naked as the day he was born sporting his summer time Santa beard, Nick Wright is still as his friends say spinning dits hard and keeping his feet wet consistently with either wave water, rain water or drinking bottle water and Jonny is growing more facial hair by the day which could cause havoc with his parents ability to recognise him.

So wish us luck as we continue our journey across this great expanse.

    I have been mesmerised by your battle with Atlantic Seamen! So, so impressed with what you are doing. Loved the blog, and the ethos you inspire. Now row safe and strong. From Andy W’s brother’s sister-in-law – another rower (albeit on little West Country rivers).
