The Beech Boys.
We got the globe out last night and laid a ruler along your track. When viewed from the top (North I think geographers call it), It's definitely down hill now and getting steeper. In fact it looks so steep at the finish that you might have to deploy the sea anchor, like a dragster, so that you don't overshoot and hit Panama!
Keep up the pace, at this rate you'll be finished in time for your Easter eggs.

Nick, Carleen & Tom
Nick Osborne, 04 Mar 2010 19:34 GMT

What a great day Beech Boys are cruising along like the Gondola! Norman, James, two Hoots of Praise in a week for you! Today Binney and I showed our 80 new OAA students your progress, we're all willing you on and we'll see you back in Coniston in April. Keep catching the surf, great steering and navigation, sit tall, be proud! Janet x

You were second fastest in the whole fleet over the last 24 hours. It looks like you have got the hang of this rowing thing at last. Keep going at this pace and you'll be finished within 10 days.
Good Luck.

Rémy Gannat, 04 Mar 2010 18:03 GMT


Well done to you all.
One thing to think about. When you cross the finish line, you are actually a couple of miles from your actual destination, English harbour. When we finish in Ma all those years ago, they threw us a tow and towed us for 10ish minutes to the harbour entrance, and then we rowed the last 1/2 a mile in. I would have preferred to have rowed all the way from land to land without assistance.

In the rush at the finish you may not have time to discuss this, so it may be a conversation for now. Or perhaps you have already discussed it.

Keep up the good work, and best of luck to you all.

Boat 53: Ahoy there Team HCL, you're doing brilliantly but Chris I just saw your mum. She's on her way home to re-pack her bag as she's just realized her luggage allowance is 53kg. She's gone to get a bigger bag so she can squuze a load more stuff into it. You'd better get a move on, she's going to need some help at the airport! Keep going, you're so nearly there. Ailsa McM x (a cootham mum)
Ailsa McM, 04 Mar 2010 17:02 GMT

Well, Leo,
It is truly amazing that you're more than half way there. I've talked with so many people that are in awe of you. Keep it up and you'll be home in no time. Although it's not so great here. Right now it's snowing mixed with rain, cold and nasty. (Yuk)
Faye told us it was 105 where you're at, I don't think I would much like that either.
Mom is doing good, pretty much the same, and she's eating well.
Everyone here is fine and rooting for you all the way.
Stay safe and keep rowing.

Congratulations on reaching the three figure mark. Lets hope and pray the winds and waves will be in your favour from now on. We hope your finger is improving Norman and you have not had to endure any more mint flavoured porridge. Perhaps you could start a new trend when you return or go into manufacturing it. We will also have to have a pancake meal where you two make the pancakes, they are bound to be better than the ones I bought at a supermarket in Kendal ( had better not mention any names!) recently.
We miss meeting Christine in the co-op on Saturday mornings to discuss your progress. Keep up the good work .
