RACE 2009 FROM LA GOMERA, CANARY ISLANDS TO IDYLLIC ENGLISH HARBOUR, ANTIGUA
Friday 27th November 2009

There are now just 9 days to go until the start of the Atlantic Ocean Rowing Race 09 and all 72 competitors are now in La Gomera. The boat scrutineering is going smoothly - with the majority of boats showing signs of good preparation.  Following the welcome meeting, all the crews hace attended the para anchor workshop and are now confident in the use of all their equipment. The admin and medical checks are also going well, however a lot of work is still to be done. The boats will soon be launched so that final sea trials and equipment tests can be carried out. Most of the crews are now packing all their food and supplies into their floating 'apartments' and may well be considering where to put the 'en suite' facilities.
