Day - 11 And then there were two….. pairs!

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

Sadly for them -boat -¬†1 Doing Time have had to retire from the race today due to some technical difficulties, the boys are pleased they¬†are safe and sound.So this leaves Southern Cross and Flying Ferkins ‘pulling it out’ for the pairs world record….Flying Ferkins have got them in their sights! Both¬†James Thysse & James Facer-Childs¬†became firm friends with Andrew & Guy prior to race day so competition aside we just hope they all stay safe.

Mood on board Ferkins remains excellent. Boat really moving in the right direction. Weather is rough presently but still looking good for the weekend. Boys in 5000m of water!
