Sam and James. Looks like in a day or so you will be in the 100's.
Well done, the welcoming committee have hopefully arrived safely, and the rest of us just can't stop thinking about you and watching the little dot. Anna's done her best to simulate what it might be like in your cabin by flooding the bath, its dripping into the diningroom! I think I am the storm.
Keep up the power rowing. Not far now, lol Josie xxx

Norman and James,
Glad you enjoyed the jokes! I've found you a few more - fish ones today!
Why did the whale cross the road?
To get to the other tide!
Whats the difference between a fish and a piano?
You can't tuna fish!
What do you call a fish with no eyes?
What is a dolphins favourite TV show?
Whale of fortune!
Pretty bad I know but thought they might keep you entertained trying to work out the answers!
Nearly there now - enjoy the final journey into Antigua. Bet you can;t wait to enjoy a good sleep in a comfy bed and wonderful food!

Igor Belakovskiy, 25 Mar 2010 15:18 GMT
from the crew of pendovey swift.
well, we did it.!!!!! made land in the early hours of sunday morning.
we would finally like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have shown an interest, monitored and left comments regarding our journey. the thought of so many of you taking the time to do this, and reading your comments has without doubt provided much needed support and boosted moral when times have been tough. maybe even raised a laugh (not you nigel.)
we both took this on for different personal reasons, however we do share a number of things. we have aimed to raise the profile and charity funds of our nominated charity, the firefighters charity, clearly, as we are firefighters something close to our hearts. we also have an aim to provide inspiration to our family, friends and all those who we meet along the way. you see, mike and i are just ordinary guys, we are no ranulph fiennes or an olympic athlete, but we have determination and will to succeed, and we all have it.
so we hope, through what we have done, will prove that if you want something. with determination, the will to succeed oh.! and maybe a little pain!!!!! anything really is possible. just remember, you only have one life - live it.
