    Great to hear that you are at long last making waves in the right direction, boys.

    Not sure if your Mum has told you this, Guy but I check on you both every night before I go to bed (and a few times during the day too!!) just to make sure you are safe and well. It takes me back to when my girls were small and I always looked in on them each night to make sure they were tucked up cosy and warm in bed. I know that I am not alone and that there are so many of us out here, following your progress, willing you on and totally in awe of your amazing achievements so far.

    You are both stars.

    With love Jill Xx

    Good news indeed, my fav ocean rowers.

    Just writing a wee article for the Horsham Resident and would simply love to know any extra details on the whale sighting.

    Quotable observations welcome xxx

    Great going chaps - good to see those miles falling away again. Hope the conditions stay favourable and you can get some good distance covered in the next few days.

    Hi boys - it’s great to wake up in the morning to see that you have made such great progress and at last the tide and currents are in your favour - long may it last. Any thoughts that you are able to share with us as to the first thing you want to do when you arrive in Mauritius? Love Clive and Andy
