Day 59 - Half Way Point Reached – 1,568nm and counting…..

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

It is fantastic to be able to write that Andrew & Guy have now broken the half way marker on Flying Ferkin’s. The 2nd half will be quicker than the first as the boys hopefully won’t hit so many Southern Ocean storms and the wind is now more favourable (at least that’s been the trend of the data). The boys have done a stock take on all the gear in the approach to 2nd half of the race and we’re good for at least 2 months! Bodies holding up well to date.

Distance made West:

Thursday 11th - 19
Friday 12th - 11
Saturday 13th - 47
Sunday 14th - 46
Monday 15th - 50

I know Andrew & Guy would want to thank you all personally:

Bloggers & Supporters: Every comment is well received and boys love them daily. Please, please keep them coming!

Flying Ferkins Support Crew (Jem/Tim et al): Massive ‘thank you’. Your dedication, commitment and daily support is crucial. Confidence comes from having people like you around.

Sponsors: Without you, Andrew & Guy’s dream wouldn’t be, being achieved.

Team MSS website: Thank you to John Plank and family. The way we can communicate what the boys are doing via this blog means everyone can live it with them. Also a damn good site don’t you agree?

Flying Ferkin Family: All of us riding this roller coaster deserve a pat on the back. A lot of dedication, time and effort to the cause going on day in, day out.

Finally, thanks to Woodvale for your very professional support on and off the ocean !
