and the latest updates from the windy deck of the support boat...
---Message begins
...."The Boats are going well - at least TWO changes of lead so far - and the boats are rowing quite close to each other..

The LCRC have just taken the lead..and they are just on their way near (sorry the wind cut in at that point> AS*)

The Cutters are rowing well - sea conditions are remarkably calm...and they are looking forward to a race down the Kent coast
--- Message Ends

(Which is ok to say for the people not sitting in the cockpit of a Cutter I guess) - keep up the good work! But the support crew sounded in fine spirits.

So for those of us tucked up at home... glass of wine in hand ..spare a thought for these guys who have been rowing now for some 10 hours already...
Looks like we're in for a good race. Will update as and when I get new news

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
