Well the arrows are all pointing the right way again on the progress chart. Either the storm has subsided or a cargo ship full of magnets has gone passed the fleet. Hopefully the muscles have recovered and the skin grown back on your butts. Keep it up.
Cobb, 02 Feb 2010 22:35 GMT

HOTW - someone mentioned total respect and that's so true. Now you are back on course, you have come so very far already and you have all our thoughts and wishes as you continue steady and strong towards that fabulous finish. Bite sized chunks maybe but they all add up in the end. You probably don't feel it but you (and everyone out there) really are heros.
David and Hugo, 02 Feb 2010 22:34 GMT


Bravo les filles !
Vous allez être championnes !
J'en suis sûre !

To Uncle Sean & Tess. I am still awake and I am watching your dot on Mam's laptop. I have my own laptop too but it's pink and I'm only able to play games on it and I can make "e cards". Mam said you rowed a lot of miles today. You are very brave and I tell my friends in senior infants all about you. Love from Zoe xxx

Great feat - over half way and hopefully plain (sailing) rowing! ahead in better conditions.

Sally and James, 02 Feb 2010 19:54 GMT

Hi Norman and James!
Hope you are feeling and seeing a change in the weather. You’ve given us a fair few things to boggle our minds recently; there was the small matter of rowing across an ocean in a tiny boat; but Norman needing a haircut?!! And both of you with beards! That’s quite a stretch! Hope you’ll be feeling a lovely East wind in your faces anytime now. We’re off to scrape a few barnacles off some children – we’ve heard it does wonders to eliminate drag
Lots of love and prayers, God bless your days ahead

Pass my best on to your rowing friends. My nurse says you're brave, because she heard that dolphins are in heat at this time of year.

When you're back lets get some papers laminated and head down to the therme!

Hi Pete
All reports indicate it's been a tough few days but that's all due to change soon and you'll be rowing your butt off again before you know it!! Glad the blisters have had a chance to least that's one positive! Another positive is you're keeping your spirits up int these trying times...that's great!

Hi James and Sam ,see you,ve taken a detour, sight seeing ? Must have been worth a look because all the boats have wandered around !
Back on course now and looking at the weather chart it should soon be getting calmer and with the wind in the right direction it,ll be plain sailing !
Keep the games going " I spy" , and

All the best Alan

Sounds like you could be on the move again and one of only 2 boats not to have lost ground in the last few days.

We're all willing the wind to turn !!

Take Care

Erik and Sandra, 02 Feb 2010 09:52 GMT

Hi Annie and Mel, the superstars on Explore! Just a thought here - if the para anchor was so efficient underwater in slowing you down when going backwards last week, could you rig it as a mini-sail now the wind's behind you? Or would that be against the spirit of the race?! Shame you didn't take one of Katie's bras... BONNNNGGGG! Another saucepan bites the dust... Keep in there! Love, Katie, and what's left of Renaud... XX.
Renaud and Katie, 02 Feb 2010 09:48 GMT

Hi Rog,
Well you are always up for a challenge and the last few days certainly gave you that!!
Fantastic that you stayed safe and relatively dry.
So now it's back to "row, row, row your boat"...should be a piece of cake after what you have been through!!
Congratulations to the other have all done a wonderful job under adverse conditions!
Stay safe.

Brilliant! You are actually doing it. But remember what Arthur Ransome wrote." Dead if duffers.If not duffers, not dead!" I hope you took a copy of 'Swallows and Amazons'. Inspired many a young boy from the Lake District to adventures on the water,eh?

Morning Red Arrow - great to see you are on the move again. Tempting as it must be to get some air in remember leaving the cabin door open will only end up in wetness again! Hopefully you've mastered the harmonica and can use it to attract the dolphins :-)
Linda, 02 Feb 2010 08:28 GMT

Hey Annie and Mel, the girls on Explore! Now you're really back on track- the arrow's pointing the right way, only a mile to overtake Nightmare Maker. "Les jeunes femmes" on Vivaldi have shot up to fifth place (by going south??) but are still within reach! Hey, while you're out there, Renaud went to Retromobile in Paris at the weekend and saw crowds round the rusty remains of a Bugatti Type 22 that had lain at the bottom of Lake Maggiore for 70 years. Bonham's auctioned it, but instead of raising £70 to £90k expected, it went for a cool £246k!!! Ren says can you keep an eye out over the side as you're going along, and have that marker buoy ready, just in case... Go for it girls-we're with you every stroke! Love, Renaud and Katie XX PS: Nice words, Charlotte!

Comfy warm pubfires and strong pints of Guinness,
Ploughmans,with pickels on lovely blue dishes,
bundles of daffodills tied up with string,
these are a few of your favorite things.
When the waves break,
and the muscles ache
and you're feeling tired,
you simply remember your favorite things and then you won't feel so bad! xxxx Good Luck Boys!

Alan and Glenda Phillips, 01 Feb 2010 23:05 GMT

Phil and Skippy Vision of Cornwall,

I suppose, the wind and the waves are moulding and building your body and spirit to metamorphose in pure seamen.

The Atlantic Rowing Race 2009 is a big Race and the 2009 rowers too.

Anyway, the future weather will be better -for sure- and so, more confortable...

Jean-Noël, 01 Feb 2010 22:33 GMT

The winds are on the turn - you will be flying soon. You have done brilliantly Beech Boys to battle on these last few days - it will be so much easier soon. Love from the Bowleses
Taff and Karin, 01 Feb 2010 22:24 GMT

Firstly Hello Missy, Hi Girls, Hope your all okay, hope those few days provided you with some much needed rest, for weary bodies and tired minds.

Keep Up the Great Work - So proud of all of you, stay focused.
Keep looking after each other.

Jo - Your doing ever so well, its amazing how far you have reached as a team in 28 days. Today hasnt been a great day for me, I miss you, some days are good others are bad. Thought id drop you a quick message to say hi, that im thinking of you. When times are hard just remember if you keep rowing the sooner you will get back. x

Hope to hear from you soon.
Take Care & Stay Safe

de rancourt elisabeth, 01 Feb 2010 21:30 GMT

Hello Girls on Mission Atlantic. Heard all about your exploits off Rob & Lou. Must say what a crazy experience, hope its living up to what you expected. Must be hard leaving loved ones behind (must be brave to cope with that alone), hope they all coping well or they have good friends/family to share the difficult times with. Hope you heard work are now gambling on your arrival date, what a good way to make some quick cash for charity. (13th March is good - wink wink)
Stay positive, keep those arms and legs rowing, and remember that you get once chance in life, so live it to the full.
Im following the blue dot with great interest, hope its not too bumpy out there and the winds turn for the better.

Jo - Just a note, it amazes me how a trip across the pond can change everything. I love a good challenge.
So Take Your Time, Good Things Come To Those That Wait.

Well Done Girls
Love Katie xoxo

Good evening fellas. Making a little forward progress again, Good on ye! Winds should be abating apparently, so not much longer of this to endure. February has begun with freezing temperatures here. Keep your mind alert, stay sane and ready to roll when the weather allows. X
