The final preparations for the race have begun. On Sunday Isabel and Danielle left the UK and began a 3 day journey down to Barcelona. The weather is hot and the road is long but the support crew are in fine spirits as they approach their target – Barcelona. They have been receiving great interest through the trip so far and the team even had their hand shaken by a policeman as he was so touched by what was being attempted. Tomorrow the boats get put into the waters of the Mediterranean for the first time. Very exciting times ahead!

This photo shows the boats taking a rest and one of the few pit stops on the journey.
