Day 12 - Message from the boys

Friday, May 1st, 2009

We received a message direct from the flying ferkins today. The boys sounded in a positive mood, despite the frustrating weather conditions!! They reported that they always knew the first couple of weeks would always be the hardest, until they found a good routine. They are hopefully following a good course though now and said that the further they get from the Australia coast the easier it should become (fingers crossed).

For those of you following shark watch….news just in the shark following them was a Bronze Whaler Shark. They said it followed their boat for a few hours and seemed very intrigued by them. Although maybe it was just¬†following the smell of two sweaty rowers!!!!!!! Tried to upload picture but website or my incapabilities, wouldnt allow it!! But if anyone knows more about the Bronze Whaler shark be interesting to hear few facts.

Apart from that they felt it was important news to report it has been fairly cloudy today so little stereo action, which for those of you who know Andrew and Guy know that music is how they function! Andrew also wanted to report that the Chocolate puddings were going down very nicely too!!!

Anyway, they hope to update us all again in the next couple of days and as Tom has said all the support has been amazing for the boys and we are reporting this all back to them so keep it coming,
