Sunny mornings in France - 11:am Tuesday

Morning all!!
Just spoken with SteveS - walking along the banks of the river.. wating for todays OFF!
The weathers warm and sunny... in fact it sounded like a Painting - boats bobbing on the river, sun, rolling hills , sigh! (where would you rather be now?)

Its the pursuit race starting today - Le FigaROW will kick off at approx 1pm - with the Cutters launching approx 25mins later

Its going to be a tough one.. le Fig are a great team and this is going to make the Cutters work hard.

Good luck to both teams - of course this site is behind the Cutters - but we'll be following the progress of Le Fig with interest - as this is going to a test of cunning and work rather than sheer endurance.

And some interesting stats (I know...I love 'em)

The TOTAL rowing time for the Cutters since leaving London is a whopping

67 Hours, 28 mins and 4 secs (approx! - hey I'm only passing on SteveS' comments!)

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.
