Saturday, May 2nd, 2009

Hi to all of you Ferkin followers!¬† We are feeling OK today and were cheered up by the sight of another boat on the horizon, especially as it turned out to be a British ship which we spoke to on the VHF radio, warning them of our position.¬† We watched as they went past - quite exciting really.¬† It’s hot today but rowing conditions are good as¬†there¬†is not much¬†wind and we are heading in a good westerly direction.¬† Hopefully you are¬†following our progress¬†on the tracker.We are now both settling into the routine and even getting into the food although neither of us are keen on the freeze-dried sweet and sour lamb,¬†but the spag bol is good.¬† We are starting to see more and more marine life and along with the sharks we even had a flying fish land on the Ferkin yesterday!¬† Thank you for all your support and please¬†post any¬†questions on the blog comments that¬†you would like us to answer and we will do our best to get back to you.Looking forward to having a beer with you all!Guy Out X
