Red Arrow crosses the finish line at 22.17 UTC on the 17th March 2010

The Red Arrow boys Richard Hume & Tom Barnes have crossed the finish line with a crossing time of 72 days, 8hrs and 43 minutes and to escort them over the finish line was ex ocean rower - BEN FOGLE!

Rich & Tom have experienced an emotional row as have all the crews with many ups and downs. They have reaped the rewards of having a superbly prepared boat with only 1 very minor water maker issue, plenty of food for the whole trip and minimal injuries to themselves.

With a very strong support crew on shore Tom & Richard have also had a sturdy ocean support crew made up of Terry the tuna, Willy & Wilma the whales & Nemo and Nema the little fish to name but a few! Some crews have had limited experiences seeing the wildlife during their crossing but Tom & Richard have certainly had this as a highlight during their row.

With Tom blogging about craving his mum's roast dinner and Richard blogging about missing his "you know what" we can only hope they are reunited with their missing bits and Tom' s mum (Mrs B) has the beef in the oven - They deserve it!

A Huge Well Done to Tom & Richard!
