"10 minutes, 10minutes" pause "10 minutes , hello, 10 minutes" now shouting "10 minutes, wake up, are you alive?" then from the cabin comes a neandathal type grunt! This is the scenario that we each go through every 2hours, as the days go by it has without doubt got harder to wake and leave the cabin and as sleep deprivation increases so too does the bizzare nature of our dreams. So far we have dreams including , walking in potato fields, a murder (onboard), a buffet (Nigel's) , a lead role starring in Dr Who, and one sexual based scenario (you'll have to by the book).
Tiredness also brings another side effect which is the slowing of reaction times. To prove this you only have to look at our shins! In a car you do what is known as a handbrake turn, well the ocean row boat equivilant is known as the "shin stop". To do this you need one tired rower a 1200kg boat, one oar and at least one shin. Then you need to catch a rogue wave, in doing this the oar should dig nicely into shin and promptly stop boat.
Good news to share, we are enjoying Westerlies and they are predicted to stay until Saturday afternoon.
Please note Steve Dawson will be launching a table mat and coaster set including todays image. Sets will be available in time for christmas at all good Pound Shops.
