10:45am Wed Update

All going swimmingly well...(not literally!!!!)

Rowers are on Leg 7 - had a 23 min handicap on Le Fig - and as SteveS rang into me - the Cutters had passed them...

This is a 25 mile pursuit - stop for a brief rest then on to the next leg 8 Andresy to Bougival

Suns HOT - clear blue skies.. 20deg C, Cutters are sweating buckets, wearing their Legionaires hats -(very fetching apparently) - and the river is busy!

GO! GO! Cutters!

And thanks to Ken Bruce - BBC Radio 2 for an excellent metion to BOTH teams
- heard at 10:05am today.

Can someone explain why the Cutters are being handicapped? I'm feeling rather confused! But, hey, at least it doesn't seem to be disadvantaging them too much because they're still winning!!!!

We are raising money for Life Saving Charities will you Sponsor us?

The Langstone Lifesavers Fund: The L2P team has set a target of raising £50,000 (€65,000) for charities with a common theme – saving lives. Our first charities, which we hopefully won’t need on our trip, are the RNLI and the Société Nationale de Sauvetage en Mer; both charitable funds that save lives at sea. Our nominated Land-based lifesaving charities included are the British Heart Foundation and Cancer Research UK.

Please sponsor our efforts in this race by clicking on the links above and give generously.

Thanks in advance
