Hi boys and girls,
So, here we are, day 3 on the anchor and by all
accounts we are doing ok. Apparently we moved up 2 places yesturday without even
rowing a stroke. Maybe if that continues we just wont bother rowing anymore.
Additionally, 2 days ago, we covered more ground than charlie pitcher, mybe we
have cracked him. The pressure we put him under was just to
Right, whats life like on red arrow at the moment.
Well. going outside isnt really too much of an option. Firstly, you get wet,
secondly, you put everybody at risk as for that moment you leave, the door
is open and you are at the mercy of the sea. So, on three occasions we have gone
out, got wet and water has come into the cabin, we just dont learn. The
cabin is fine, there is no space, its damp, it smells and more than anything i
have to share it with tom. He would say the same, its ok, but he has to
share it with me!!! It gets hot during the day, so we both sweet loads, were
eating alot of fruit and sugar so we are farting alot and both of us are so
intelegent (even i know thats spelt wrong!) conversation revolves around food we like or would like right now and pub
quiz questons out of a book we were given just before we left. Our top score is
6 out of 20, brilliant.
The weather has really set in and is due to
continue for another 4 days so we should, if all goes well be out rowing come
monday evening. And i for one cant wait. Although my bum is enjoying the rest,
my hands are getting very sore as the tendons had got used to rowing and now are
trying to get back to normal. The problem with that is, is that when they
recover, they will be rwowing again. Having had no porblems with my back
whilst rowing, being in the cabin is almost totally umbareable and im very sore.
At one point the other night, it was effecting my breathing which was not nice.
So, theres not much else to say, its not that rough its just too rough to row and the winds
are in totally the wrong direction to do anything. It was a full moon last night
which was amazing, such a shame were werent rowing with it, burt i guess we will
get another chance, hopefully just the once!
im missing alot from back home and sitting in the
cabin is hard without letting your mind wounder, but we will gwt to antigua,
eventually and before we know it, wish we were back out here!
signing out, i know ive missed things i wanted to
say, but hey, there will be other times nodoubt!
ps. David and fiona, thank you for your gift,
pisses tom right off! also, david, thanks for looking after mum, hannah said you
were doing a great job!
