Day 100 - Greg Searle MBE

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

Wow Andrew and Guy have been 100 days at sea! They have made some amazing progress over the last few days as can be clearly seen from the Woodvale news. Flying Ferkins managed a 449 distance from finish over the 7 days between 19th and 26th July. An average daily distance from finish of 64nm [wooohooo]. Conditions ok and boys remain in confident mood. Eating well and maintaining good sleep patterns.

Andrew witnessed a smaller whale whilst rowing yesterday. The whale circled Flying Ferkins and then headed off towards Mauritius from the bow.

Fantastic to receive the following message from Greg Searle MBE. Greg Searle is an Olympic gold medalist, winning the coxed pairs event at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics.

“To Guy and Andrew, Good luck with your race across the Indian Ocean. It sounds like an amazing challenge and something that will make you very proud if you can do it. I hope it goes well!” Greg Searle
