The mean value of your progress is roughly 50 mn per day, if I collect the distances on a period covering the nine last consecutive days!

Its a quite very good performance, isnt?

You are far ahead but close to me!

Mike palmer, 24 Feb 2010 11:37 GMT

Hi Norman & James
Must be a nice thought to look forward to the start of counting down from 999 miles to go. You have probably got it listed on your jottings that you have now rowed past Hoathwaite Landing the equivelent of 287 times. Your experiences of complete quiet no artifical lights at night. just the stars moon and God's great expance of His created universe must be something that you will miss when you are back in Coniston let alone the great Birmingham conurbation. God bless you both, back to my metal machines and students Richard Fasham
Richard fasham, 24 Feb 2010 11:20 GMT

BEECH BOYS: Keep going Norman and James! You're doing an amazing job, and not only at the rowing! Through all that tiredness, we marvel at your ability to dwell on the positives. Whatever the vagaries of the day to day speed, like the elephant that an earlier blog mentioned, this journey is definitely disappearing!
You must be so proud of Joe! What a hero! We can think of at least two other heroes for whom some sort of medal for outstanding bravery and humour in the face of adversity would be in order!
lots of love and prayers for strength, Jill Warren Daniel Evannie Anna and Lydia

annie mel. two more great milestones in the past 24 hours you are under 900 miles to the finish but even greater than that you have now covered two thirds of the distance, absolutely fantastic well done. love pete and fans.
bristol balloon pete, 23 Feb 2010 23:18 GMT

Hi Annie and Mel on Explore!

Annie, your blog suggests Mel will "definitely win the biggest pain in the arse award". Is this because she has the biggest pains in her arse, or because she simply has pains in the biggest, sorry Michie, bigger, arse??

Hey, come on you two - we don't message for a couple of days and you drop a couple of places. So if we message twice a day for 7 days, will you take over the lead???... (You're 14th at the moment) Not far to go, and coming back should be easier thanks to Sainsbury's... Keep the pressure on - now's the time to make the push that will make the difference!!!

In your idler moments, think about the book you're going to ghost-write - "Two oars against the Atlantic" - brilliant title don't you agree???

Love as always to both, Katie and Renaud xx.
Renaud and Katie, 23 Feb 2010 23:13 GMT

As you know, I'm not the seafaring type but I do know about food!

Sounds like Heston Blumenthal did your packing! Hope there aren't too many bags like yesterdays. If so,
imagine you have just brushed your teeth before eating.

Keep up the good work. We're all watching you and thinking of you.

Sorry, been a bit quiet of late - apparently they pay me to sit at this desk rather than just chart how you guys are getting along. How rude.

Awesome progress of late, really consistant. Loved reading the blog, assume you have some power in the old lappy now. Good to see some photos too, imagine that the oars are just extensions of you limbs now!!

Toodle pip for now, will write more later.

Hello the Mobydicks,

Here you have been interfering with the wildlife, you know you can be arrested for that.
Making really good progress are you sure you are not still attatched to the beast.
Look on the bright side your trophy should bring a good price on Ebay for your charity. When are you bringing the book out " 3 men still afloat" should make a good film.
Save some energy for the sprint finish all the very best.

Time to keep focussed and dig in eh - well done you're doing great - we are so jealous of all the experiences you are going through - especially the night skies.
