You are exactly 1/2 way there! We hope your last half is easier than your first half of the race. We are so proud of you.

Thanks for the message at last! France went without any hitches so the Duke behaved. Looking forward to Ancy in May, hopefully you will be finished by then if you get a wiggle on.

How's the designer sideburns getting on? Keep plugging away and the end will soon be in sight.

Take care

Hi there Vivaldi ! Il y a des chiffres qui parlent d'eux-mêmes... Vitesse moyenne et distance parcourue en 24h en impressionnent plus d'un. Vous donner l'impression de dérouler sans vous poser de question, la tête dans le guidon. Quelle leçon mes amies ! Etant donné les "vaguelettes" qui sont venues meurtrir l'Amérique du Sud côté Pacifique après séisme, nous nous réjouissons que vous soyez en train de ramer de l'autre côté... Tons of kisses to the four of you. Hughy

Steve Wood, 01 Mar 2010 00:44 GMT


Hi Norman and James,
You are doing brilliantly and soon you will be under the 1000.I was wonderi ng how many lengths of the lake that would be...I know you had worked out the number of lengths of the lake which would be equivalent to the total crossing before you went but I've forgotten ! and its a bit late on sunday night for doing mathematical problems.Mind you I surprised the centre staff the other day with my mental arithmetic speed in solving a puzzle steve had brought in.Said good bye to christine twice as couldn't get parked outside connies when I went to pick her up this morning...traffic chaos in the lay-by so had to park outside your house.and christine was just leaving.Connie and Lucy both came to dinner to-night and they think about you often and say hello.Like all of us they wish you well.Look after each other and bye for now.Glenda

P.S. Happy 4?th Birthday Neil !
simon sidebottom, 28 Feb 2010 22:33 GMT

Hello Neil & Dean !

Good to see you enjoying the nice weather ! I was wondering what being in the middle of the ocean in pitch darkness is like? Do you not get the same sensation as white-out? Just a thought...... So, you sound upbeat - that's good, glad you're enjoying the gruelling trip. Have you thought about rowing back again, Antigua airport may have shut down for refurbishment ... I'm sure it was on


Keep going boyz

Hi Beech Boys,hope your both well and are doing well in the race
love from Rhianna
Rhianna Todd, 28 Feb 2010 21:07 GMT

Beech Boys

Norman's hand sounds like tendonitis to me - caused by repetitive flexion / extension of the fingers around the oar which makes the tendon swell inside the sheath - I've had it ! Of course the R & E of R.I.C.E. are impractical whilst rowing, but you might want to keep them as cool as poss. & take the max. ibruprofen dose, then elevate whilst resting. David.
David Taylor, 28 Feb 2010 21:05 GMT

WELL, I don't know whether you can feel it yet but here in St. Val we're HUFFING & PUFFING as hard as we can to push you girls home. Your not far now and the record is still in sight. So please don't be too dispondent. You've done absolutely fantastic so far and we're sure things have got to improve for you two. We've got everything crossed. Maybe the Christmas cake should go overboard as it may be stale and damp by now and weighing the boat down. On a lighter note we are looking forward to you coming here to rest after your amazing voyage and I promise, promise, promise not to make my amazing Shepherds Pie or get next years Xmas cake out but there will be lots & lots of French Champagne. Keep that thought. Dig those oars in deep and we'll see you soon. Take care. LOL. Katie & Renaud. XX XX

Hi Joe and Chris HCL WF1

Ok some competitor stats to work on whilst you're battling bad weather.
You are 8th and 641 from goal. Dreammaker 7th 1.11 in last 24 and 638 from goal but not on as straight a line as you guys are keeping. Patience in similar line to you 1.55 last 24hrs and 573 from goal.

Kim, 27 Feb 2010 20:59 GMT

Hi Joe and Chris HCL WF1

I'm guessing from VMG stats that weather is frustrating things - I cannot make any sense of that weather map

You're doing a fantastic job - you're in 8th position and sitting pretty to rock once the weather improves. I know you'll give it welly . You're on the home stretch now - once last heave when you get the chance. Love to you both, Kim, x

During these last four days, because of the very bad meteorological conditions, Vision of Cornwall acheived a perfect circle on the Atlantic Ocean.

Norman and James.
Noticed that you have had a bit of a loop in your travels. So have lots of other boats. Stay encouraged. The children of Israel reached the promised land. Refined and enriched , the bonus is you won't be as dusty as them and it wont take as long. Every blessing praying for you both. Land beckons.

Eole fait encore des siennes ! Espérons qu'il se fatigue vite de ses extravagances. Vous nous avez déjà montré votre patience et votre persévérance devant les éléments naturels. Vous m'épatez. Courage les filles ! Avec mon chaleureux soutien.
Bises à Quitterie et à ses "co-mer".
