Day 22 - 600nm crossed

The boys have¬†broken the 600nm mark! They are soon to cross¬†100 degree’s longitude! As we can see from the progress tracker on the Woodvale site, the boys have lost¬†a fair few nautical miles¬†on Southern Cross.¬†It’s not easy being back markers. So¬†Andrew & Guy¬†have to pick themselves up physically and mentally and get the¬†pace¬†going again. Instead of taking lunch and afternoon breaks and having a decent sleep, they’ll be¬†rowing a little harder to¬†pull¬†back the distance dropped.¬† Cummon boys! Bloggers please keep those questions/comments coming and thank you again for all your amazing support.

    You’re doing amazingly. The Horsham Press - and national radio! - are all over you like a cheap suit.

    Keep chasing Southern Cross. When you do maybe you’ll even make the front page of the CT! if that’s not an incentive then I don’t know what is.

    Thinking of you both xxx

    Boys - question for the evening:

    “Did either of you take a cuddly toy ?

    Love you, Amelia (age 2!) ‘bit more’

  5. Moses Says:

    Maybe they use each other for cuddles in such a tight space, reckon there must at least be some accidental (?) spooning going on?!

    Progress at the moment is impressive, your doing an amazing job out there, keep it up and let’s get those Southern Cross boys caught and left behind!!!!!

    With you all the way!
