Hi Simon & Mike (Pendovey Swift)
Lovely to speak to you this evening, not too long before you reach dry land now, would be good if you could get there for your birthday.
Glad to hear you are catching fish and able to eat fresh food even if it is raw but then you are always in the Sushi Bar when you are home.
Take care of yourselves and come home safe.
Lots of love Mum & Ian xxx

You're doing a great job Beech Boys - it's incredible how far you've got. Hope Joe's pulling his weight and helping you get through the 500 mile marker. Not heard how his love life lately - does that mean bad news from bubbles!! She's not been eaten has she?

God bless,
Mark, Elaine and family
Mark & Elaine East, 12 Mar 2010 20:50 GMT

Atlantic Waterbabes - must be the thought of a good nights sleep, a meal you havent had to 'cook' yourselves and an ice cold drink that's tugging you at great speed towards Antigua - keep up the good work - nearly there - a little faster and a following wind and you'll make it home before the family leave Jo. Avidly watching your dot now and willing it along my screen. Love to you all. Dave & Jacky & Luke x G'ma sends her love too Jo.!

annie mel. another great day compared with your rivals. you are now on loch lomond.its 401 miles from loch lomond golf course to bristol, fancy playing a round. its all balls and birdies.eagles and albatros. not dolphins and whales.just think about the 19th antigua love pete
bristol balloon pete, 12 Mar 2010 19:59 GMT

BEECH BOYS : Great going Norman and James! Hope injuries are under control. We keep trying to imagine what your shift pattern must be like to live! Though we have no hope of grasping the reality of that, there are aspects that remind us just a little of the time just after the twins arrived! Partners on opposite 3 hour shifts, dreadful sleep ...and a complete dependence on Sudocreme! (There really should be an ode to that stuff!). We wouldn't like to add to that an unbearable heat, dried food, no water on tap and an exhausting exercise regime! You guys are amazing! Hope you have an easier weekend than last and enjoy all that you can. Not long to go now! lots of love JWDEALxxxxxx
p.s. we are slightly worried about how Bubbles is going to react to your plan to eat her entourage/ band members at the 500 mark! Best keep that a secret!
Jill Warren Daniel Evannie Anna and Lydia , 12 Mar 2010 18:45 GMT

Pour Vivaldi.
Je me disais bien ....
Yves Gérard (copain de promo) me posait la question il y a quelques jours. Pour moi c'était peut-être ta fille mais je pensais plus à une nièce ou une parente proche . En tout cas je n'imaginais pas qu'elle ne fût de ta famille.
Un immense bravo donc et toute mon admiration pour cet équipage de charme et pour ta nièce en particulier, qui ont porté haut le pavillon.  Elles ont été magnifiques de bout en bout.
Bien amicalement.
