MEL AND ANNIE ATLANTIC CROSSING
Tuesday 19th January 2010

We’ve been at sea almost a week now but it feels as if I’ve always lived on this boat, it’s amazing how quickly you can get used to something!

We are well into our rhythm now with the rowing and sleeping pattern and general practicalities of life on board – Annie can make a cup of tea in only 10 minutes now!  Both of us are already totally sick of freeze dried food though (it all has the taste and texture of soggy cardboard!), eating meals isn’t something to look forward to – it’s just something to be done, thank God for Christmas cake and flapjack then! Michy also gets an 8 out of 10 – points only being deducted for the fact that it needs to be supplied with a lock and key to stop Annie eating the whole lot!!!
We’re still holding our own with the boys out here, rowing is quite tough at the moment as both the swell and the wind are against us and the boat feels really heavy – we’re desperately trying to put some West in but the weather seems to have different ideas, we’re ploughing on though and spirits are still high onboard.  Both of us are really quite competitive so thoughts of beating boys and breaking records are extremely motivating and being out near the front is a huge psychological boost, there’s now way we’re losing this pack, we’re staying with them to Antigua and hoping to use some ideal conditions at some point to put some of them behind us. Read more.
