Hi Tom & Rich (RED ARROW)

Your making great headway guys I'd estimate you should start to see land by about tomorrow lunchtime or sooner!

We admire your determination so much together with all the others on that difficult demanding task, fantastic effort. Keep it up, not too many NM to go now.

The cold BEERS are getting closer.

Take care of yourselves out there and keep it going guys.

Chris - Sophie - Jack

Deano/Neil. your still doing fine but it appears that you`ve not moved for 3 days cos your last report day was last friday, so it looks like you are miles behind the Welsh lads but in theory you have proberbly swept past them and moved up to 10th in class,it will make interesting reading when they get your position sorted, good luck and keep it going

MIKE, 15 Mar 2010 00:27 GMT

Hello James and Norman

So glad to hear that James' back is improving and how wonderful that you've gotten some real Lake District weather at last, you must've felt really at home in all that rain.

I continue to read your blogs to classes each day and your wit in the face of adversity continues to be an inspiration for us all. Good and God speed in the final stages of your journey. We have jelly babies and jammy dodgers at the ready for the 500 miles to go mark.

Best wishes

Nearly home. I'll book some desks if I can find any. You might want to bring the rowing seat with you.

Good show, I was rather expecting over budget, and slipped a bit.
Lessons learned will read "Marlin gun required next time"
Mel, 14 Mar 2010 20:33 GMT

annie are going great. F1.motor racing started today those guys are paid millions to travel in a machine at 200 mph. other guys kick a bag of wind around for 90 mins a week. i think they all need to do some thing similar to what you are doing before they earn the right to bank those cheques they dont know how lucky they are love pete.
bristol balloon pete, 14 Mar 2010 20:21 GMT

annie mel. your little yellow marker dot has moved across my screen huge distances. when we were camping in long aston in our camper van for last years fest. we were issued with a round yellow sticker its stuck on my wing mirror that too has travelled a few miles in the wet is that coincidence or what. love pete

Phil and Skippy Vision of Cornwall

You are rowing in your best...

There is 200 nm left with a roughly 50 nm a day speed!

The estimated number days you are still living and rowing on the sea is very simple to estimated!

This is good for you, still on the ocean and will be good I am sure on the land!

Furthermore, the situation of Vision of Cornwall in the fleet is a good one, again.

I appreciate very much your behavor on this race.

During this week you where rowing I tried to row with a canoe...on the snow!

The efficiency was not brillant!

Jean-Noël, 14 Mar 2010 15:14 GMT

Row, Row, Row that boat! Wow!! Check it out! 95 miles in just two days!! FAAANTASTIC! At this rate you'll be home with family and loved ones way before you know it!! Smell the champers! Whoop, Whoop!...Keep it going and keep smiling guys! Truely outstanding..Amazing! x
Nicky James and friends, 14 Mar 2010 14:44 GMT

Great work Leo! Only 900 to go. Only? So, i now own a submarine. I just picked it up from Van Dusen....and yes, it took on about 10 gallons of water. Hope you are more afloat than me. Looking forward to hearing about your adventures.
Lisa K, 14 Mar 2010 14:30 GMT

Congratulations on getting below the 1000 mile mark. I hope you have good wheather and keep your spirts up.

Jack Brosnahan, 14 Mar 2010 10:07 GMT

Well Norman, and James -the fascinating mystery is... which one of you is writing which entry of the blog. Its a bit like Belle de Jour (well not exactly the content!). I'm thinking that James is on Mission Impossible and Norman is relationship advisor for Joe the swimmer and Bubbles- but then again I could be wrong. Will all be revealed at the end? Keep us guessing!
Good speed to you again, HoP! James, will you be ready for Eights Head of the River or is 20' too short?
Janet and Vicky, 14 Mar 2010 10:05 GMT

You're doing great, keep going well. Not far to go now. Keep strong. you'll soon be on dry land. Congratulations to you all. Can't wait to see you Jo. Love to all. Gran Fieldsend
Jan Tooth, 14 Mar 2010 08:53 GMT

Hi Norman and James,
It has been great to keep up to date with your progress via your daily blogs. We hope that as you approach the closing stages and have your destination in your sights that you will feel exhileration and encouragement and that this will spur you on. However, - in the hope that it might boost your progress by just a bit more - I want to give you a bit of encouragement and incentive. I ventured into keeping a few chickens about 2 years ago - it's quite a long story, which I wont try to write about just now but it has been a very interesting, rewarding and productive past-time. Would you believe that chickens talk to you? Well they do - at least mine talk to me. I was talking to them the other day and I was telling them about what you were doing and they all got together and told me that they wanted to help. As a result they have all got their heads down and are trying to lay eggs like mad. They have also insisted that I bring some eggs for you to enjoy on your return to Coniston.
We're praying for your safe return and that you are able to enjoy these final stages of what must be an awesome venture.
With our love and very best wishes, Chris and Joan (Phillips)
Chris Phillips, 14 Mar 2010 07:52 GMT

Hi Norman and James - bit tough the last week yeah but we are all rooting for you. At Lazerz yesterday hands shoot up when we put the dots up on the screen - everyone wants to point out Beech boys Atlantic - you're going to have loads of questions to answer when you get back to Coniston!
We're singing "Trust in the Lord with all your Heart and lean not on your own Understanding (Proverbs 3 vs 5) on Sunday - thought it might help a bit in the difficult times.

Well I will try it now, Well done , you are my heroes, bet you are looking forward to your next pint in Antigua, must be fantastic looking at the stars, AAAAARGHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! Can't do it? Sticks in my throat. Holiday of a life time, no fuel charges, no taxes, supply your own food, water on tap,Sushi underneath, dolphins doing syncronised dancing, plancton glowing for your pleasure and to top it all you have been line dancing with the rest of the fleet and you lost a place!!!! Well SIMON you need to appologise on the Wave. Better still, change your rowing to 2 of you rowing for 6 hours and 1 hour rest. . Perhaps you might finally realise that this is not a jolly!!! Shame on you.
