08:55pm Tuesday eve

Quick update...

The Cutters were off the port bow of the Sea Satin (Support boat) having left Notre dame de la Garenne - and were pulling steadily toward their next destination of Mericourt.
They left at 20:38 and are going to be rowing through the night and hoping to do this in approximately 5 hours. So at 3am when we're all tucked up..they'll be drifting into their next "port of call" - There they can lay over for a few hours...and get some well earned rest.

Pursuit on!

In the last leg, they rowed past a campsite with a lot of Union Flags, and St Georges cross flags - the campers found out what was happening and gave mighty cheer to the Cutters as they passed by!

Oh and I think the fatigue is setting into the support crew too.. Steve S has gone all "mystical and poetic describing the scenery " :-)

Just before I finished the call I asked how spirits were... with that came this great quote

"hey the rowers... the rowers have just started singing"

and with that I could hear the distant splashing of oars and some musical voices.

In good spirits? I think so dont you?

And a big thankyou to Lance and the crew of the Sea Satin - for their hard work - seems they the cause for much hilarity on the support boat
