In Fally hanging out with shazza and the gang - on a course. Sharron wants to know whether you took your bit of grass with you because she doesn't want you having no green to look at. Lucy says she likes to know you're on the boat - it's a bit like you've been quaranteened and are therefore safe and out of trouble (shaz thinks you can still manage it, despite "being on a little small boat in the middle of the ocean)").
Hurry up, will you. Off mid March and time marches on.
sebastian, 08 Feb 2010 08:26 GMT
hi Lee one last message before we set off to your place and then we fly on Tuesday.still doing good keep going keep safe and well and we'll see you when you get into Barbados.love mumxx

On ne vend pas la peau de l'ours avant de l'avoir tué. Ce n'est pas fair play d'annoncer que QBE va doubler Karukera avant que ce soit fait.
La course n'est pas fini, ils n'ont pas dit leur dernier mot.
Et bravo pour leur belle performance pendant ces 35 premiers jours.
Le Rames Dames ont des ailes ! Bravo les françaises.

Pour Vivaldi, et particulièrement pour Laurence de R.
Depuis le début de la course, je ne peux pas partir aux plumes sans savoir où vous en êtes. C'est dopant. On imagine volontiers que le baromètre n'a pas forcément été au beau fixe tous les jours ces derniers temps. Mais depuis le début de la semaine, on ne sait pas ce que vous avez mangé, c'est tout simplement impressionant. Bravo & Bon courage.

Hiya Norman and James.
Looks like you are well on the move now and going great. We had 10 minutes at Crusaders yesterday updating your progress and we watched your Lookaround TV appearance - great interview James - keep your Dad rowing! We have lots of messages from CCF and Crusaders to put up over the next week.
Was well jealous when the weather girl talked about the temperature around you on Lookaround but then I thought about being in that boat and amazingly the jealousy seemed to leave very quickly.
Still think you are mad but lots of admiration as well
Keep going and be encouraged - everyone is rooting for you
