Day 73 - The Naked Truth

Wednesday, July 1st, 2009

It’s an amazing feeling being 10 weeks at sea. Scarey how you can spend so much time on such a small craft. Nice feeling as it comes towards an end, definately different feeling onboard the boat given the end point is now in sight. Really pushing hard. Pleasure to speak with Sarah Outen (everytime we speak with her!). Given us some good helpful advice. She is quite an inspirational person, please look at her website. She¬†will be¬†the first female to cross the Indian Ocean, an incredible feat in itself. Watched James Bond movie ‘The World Is Not Enough’ which was cool. Good to get some time away from things. Sores coming back for an encore, big white heads abosolutely disgusting. Found a couple more apple crumbles, apple pies and lucozade bars. Nice to find these stashed away. Last day of June and hitting 2000nm was a nice feeling. Next big target is to clear the 1000nm to Mauritius¬†marker. Always working out statistics in my head,¬†thanks for that dad.

I’m having to row naked because of the sores, fair to say it’s not a pretty site. Amazing day today beautiful weather, planning on cracking into some Haribo tonight! Andy & I planning on speaking to Helen (rower on boat 88 Aud Eamus) tonight as well. She became good friends of ours in Australia. Helped fatten us up with chocolate & doughnuts. Right guys thanks alot for your support. Looking forward to seeing you. Neil, we will be back in time! Cheers Greg, take care Tom and see you later on.
