Day-50 Hold tight

Monday, June 8th, 2009

50 days at sea and 1,366nm covered! Andrew & Guy are presently biding their time on Flying Ferkins. The wind has made it very difficult for the boys to row west. Parked up on the para anchor (not an easy task in itself) the boys will continue to manage status hourly in order to try and hold position. There are going to be a frustrating few days to come as the wind will govern them being at anchor. Although frustration can’t be avoided as the boys obviously want to be making headway, the mood is positive. Both the boy’s bodies are holding up ok by all accounts. Andrew does however, have spots on his rear!! Thankfully, using the tea tree they can treat these minor infections, although much more difficult to manage in such wet conditions.

Please keep your comments & questions coming (any good jokes/stories/brain teasers etc would be gladly received)

Distance made West over weekend:
Fri 5th: 40nm
Sat 6th: 19nm
Sun 7th: 4nm
Mon 8th: -13nm
