Good evening !
Oh dear. The lads have had even more trouble with the boat
1)The runners on the second rowing seat have gone.
2)The steering totally went so they had to strip the whole thing and rebuild it which took hours of rowing time out of the day.
They are gutted "We must be the unluckiest team ever but we will not stop"
They are so determined.
On a brighter note Andy got hit by a flying fish today ( hahaha) ( sorry Andy)
The link below makes for interesting reading... Especially this paragraph
The flights of flying fish are typically around 50 meters (160 ft), though they can use updrafts at the leading edge of waves to cover distances of up to 400 m (1,300 ft). 1414 They can travel at speeds of more than 70 km/h (43 mph). 15 Maximum altitude is 6 m (20 ft) above the surface of the sea. 11 Some accounts have them landing on ships' decks. 12111617
Don't forget .... Please support the " unluckiest team ever"
