Welcome...to the 2boysinaboat blog - Jamie Sparks and Luke Birch row the Atlantic!

Well, we have been talking about it for long enough and now it’s the small matter of actually doing it!
36 hours to go and then we are off to the Canaries. We arrive at Tenerife South and then onto the ferry to La Gomera where the Maple Leaf awaits.  Tomorrow I need to pack – Luke is still in Edinburgh – he gets to London late tomorrow, and then we need to decide what to take, or not to take...
This is the site for our blog during the journey.  If all goes well we start on the 2nd December (the long term forecast looks promising) and we will aim to update you with the highs and lows and the occasional photo if the sat phone allows.
