Rowing 13th November 2005
Whilst walking back to the boat last night we passed this plywood 'Atlantic crossing' rowing boat, and stopped to chat to the charming and cheerful Scottish rower onboard.   He is called Lorgan, and he is leaving today on a two thousand mile trip all by himself across the Atlantic.  We had a fascinating half an hour chatting to him about how he manages in all the big seas, and how his trip has been so far.  He was hit by a trawler and holed in the Bay of Cadiz, and now has repaired his wee boat.  I now feel quite pathetic for being worried about the Atlantic crossing on the Sarah Grace after seeing him be so brave.   He wants to rename 'Atlantic Wolf' the 'Lovely Yvette' when he reaches the Carribbean, after his girlfriend.
