ATLANTIC DASH ROWERS
Monday 12th February 2024

It seems everyone is rowing across the Atlantic. Two teams are still heaving ho in the Atlantic Dash, both now over half-way across.

The crews have seen their mileage drop a bit over the last few days because of some unhelpful weather, but they are still making good progress, and the map shows what a long way they have already come

Check out their latest news. 

THE BRIGHTSIDES

As they get closer to Antigua the team are having to deal with the heat and the calm conditions aren’t providing any breeze

They are looking after each other and making sure they are all staying hydrated. 

They have been in to clean the hull again and, on a separate occasion, heard a pod of whales around the boat. Although too dark to see, they could smell them had heard the puff of their blowholes

Distance to Antigua 775nm 

72.3% complete 

ATLANTIC ROCKS

Phil, Dan, Wally and Binnsy have had some great wildlife encounters, a rare sighting of Manta Rays half the size of the boat! They have also taken some flying fish to the face and spotted a humpback whale and last night a marlin put on a display by jumping out of the water next to their boat! 

Unfortunately they have lost access to their music, but they are keeping themselves entertained with a daily quiz

Distance to Antigua 1119nm
