Course Not Yet Completed but A Record Already Broken - Ocean Row for Cancer

Another update has come in on Thomas' BLOG (click on the link to read the full report). They are doing really well inspite of the various obstacles one comes across during ones daily row across the Atlantic!! Rogue waves,  huge swells,  the awful feeling of sea sickness, which takes some time to conquer, among the many.
Fortunately they seem to be an excellent team working very well together - that's half the battle in my mind.


The exciting news is that they have already broken a record. I will quote from his blog  ''First up, a new world record!  That’s right, we have established a new world record by covering a distance of over 100 miles/160 kilometres for each 24-hour period over the past 10 consecutive days (up to yesterday, 18 January 14.00GMT).  Today Sara G again covered in excess of 100 miles and extended our record by yet another day.  And we have no intention of slowing down!  This record has been confirmed by The Ocean Rowing Society International, the official adjudicator of ocean rowing records for Guinness World Records.''

So that is really good news. The other news which is a bit nerve wracking is that they have competition on the water. Team Hallin Marine in a trimaran boat set off on their record breaking attempt on the 6th of January and the other team aiming to break the record is Team Big Blue which is out on the water too.

Thomas is raising money for the Puttinu Cares fund which helps with treatment and support for children with cancer and their families.
