Update from the Yorkshire Rows

Hi All

Row, Row, Row your boat!!! - Repeat, repeat, yes you guessed it repeat!!!

Thank you all for the very kind messages and support we have received it is really appreciated. Communication can be quite tricky out here and when we receive the messages it really gives us a boost to think that we are in your thoughts out here in this little boat!! A short update on how things are going out here in the big blue.

The weather and the ocean are proving less than accommodating, with choppy and rough seas making progress difficult at the moment. We are steering by hand and continue to suffer equipment malfunction, but we now have just over 700 nautical miles to go with the end getting nearer with every stroke. We are managing all the issues and and are getting quite adept at fixing things.

We are all well, safe and in good spirits (although a bit tired and sore) and with our focus very much on the finish line in Antigua.

Whilst this challenge is hard going for us, we do know that it will end. Many of the people helped by our two fantastic charities do not have that luxury, the support provided by Maggies Cancer Caring Centre and Yorkshire Air Ambulance is invaluable. 

Please help us raise funds by going to www.yorkshirerows.com/donate 

All for now

Love and best wishes
