Day 76 (Sat 20 Mar 1330 - Sun 21 Mar 1330)

22 Mar 2010 10:59 GMT

At the conclusion of day 76, 13 crews had completed the race distance with a further 6 crews inside the last 100nm. So far, the original 3 crews in the fours class have completed the distance, with a further 9 pairs and the solo boat of Charlie Pitcher.


Simon Evans on board Pendovey Swift celebrates his birthday today, but no doubt he will be celebrating that little bit more as he, along with rowing partner Mike Arnold made land at 11:13 UTC this morning.


Peter Van Kets is due to finish during the first few hours of day 77 with the crews of Vision of Cornwall and No Fear to follow later the same day.


Ole and Brian on Boogie Woogie were host to another shark found circling their boat on Friday. They continue to be in good spirits and are looking to make land on 11th April. That gives them 20 days to cover the remaining 700nm.


A blog on Dave Brooks website suggests his parents may miss him making land at English Harbour, Antigua. They are due to arrive on Thursday, but Dave’s current progress suggests he should make land on Wednesday. Fear not, as it transpires that Dave’s ‘life coach’ Peter Van Kets will act as in loco parentis for Dave until his parents do arrive, although this is the first of several ocean rowing legs Dave has planned so his parents should be able to see him make land in future ventures.


The forecast continues to look positive for the next 5 days with varying wind speeds – anywhere from 5-25 knots all from the east and east north east direction.
