Pour tout cela, découvrir l'Amérique, faire rêver toute la famille et les amis, graver le marbre, construire une cathédrale,
just by rowing.
We absolutely want you introduce us your three fantastic sea sisters, as soon as you come back.

laurence de ste foy les lyon, 02 Mar 2010 20:28 GMT

HOTW - brilliant progress and at this rate, by the weekend, you will have overtaken Beech Boys who are only 35NM ahead . . . Still cannot believe that you have been out there for so long and are still racing onwards and at this speed but now the end really is in sight - maybe a finish by the 20th - who knows ! but the end really is so near for you both. Best of luck and we will keep following you on line.

To Vivaldi & Karukera. On s'autorise à dire dans les milieux autorisés que les boys auraient décidé de nous la jouer Frenchy Fair Play et d'attendre ces dames afin de couper ensemble la ligne d'arrivée... COOL ! Voilà qui devrait en boucher un coin aux Rosbeefs, en attendant de leur mettre la pâtée dans le tournoi des six Nations puisque seule la France est invaincue et a bien l'intention de s'offrir le grand chelem... Et l'arbitrage partial habituel n'y changera rien ! Imaginez qu'on leur met 5 essais à rien dans les naseaux et ça vous donnera du peps pour souquer ! Tons of kisses from Hughy.

Hey there Chris & Joe Team HCL, you probably now know why you didn't row before, and probably never want to see another oar again! We've been dot watching since you set off and you are both doing brilliantly, we're in awe of what you have achieved. We've got everything crossed for you that the wind and waves are with you til you reach the finish line. As Yoda would say, may the force be with you. West sussex is thinking you. x

Hi Leo,

It is an incredible accomplishment to have come so far facing such adverse conditions. Hopefully the next half of the trip will include a more accomodating weather pattern. Faye has related your fascinating encounters with other ocean travellers. Perhaps we should all put to sea at some point in our lives and learn some civility and consideration toward others!

Keep rowing and stay well. Sheila and I think of you frequently bouncing about in the mid Atlantic.

George Daley, 01 Mar 2010 15:30 GMT

Been out of touch, but not out of mind, for a while and it's great to see you're still progressing towards the finish line at a steady pace.
And what fantastic luck to meet up with the 'Fear' guys, swimming and chatting like 'normal' folk!
Stay safe and strong
Lots of love
