HALF WAY HOME!!!
HALF WAY MARK REACHED !!!!
20thJune 2005. 1200bst. 4601.0000N,02940.0000W,0M
Our next major milestone was passed at 6.05 am June 20th 2005. Debate will always ensue as to exactly where half way is, is it half way in miles, half way in degrees etc. etc. For us, after discussion with Lee Bruce, our weather router, it was the 30 deg West mark that got the vote. So in darkness, drizzle, cold and 20knts of SW wind the half way point was crossed and is already moving steadily behind us. For once nobody rushed to get off the oars at 6am, and Rob and Steve were more keen than usual to get out and row. I think we all fancied being on the oars for that ''MOMENT IN TIME". Of course we're well aware of what's left to do. This adventure is far from over, there will be many challenges to face before Falmouth is in sight. But please indulge us this small celebration of a major step on our journey home to you all.
Not sure if it's a coincidence or not but Georges porridge was close to perfect this morning.
Yours Aye, The Crew.
