Sarah is now into her last few hours of rowing as her support team in Adak (Tony Humphreys, Ocean Manager and James Sebright, photographer) prepare to meet her. Latest from Tony below:
We’re leaving port at midnight (1.5hrs time, 09.00UTC/10.00BST) and hope to be at the southern end of the Kagalaska Passage by 04.30 local time. Once on the southern side of the island we should have VHF comms with Sarah and will rendezvous with her. Subject to where she is, what her COG is and what the wind’s doing we may let her row on, hopefully to land, or we’ll take her in tow and bring her back to port. All going well we’ll be back early afternoon (midnight’ish UTC). We won’t have any access to internet or cell phone coverage until we get back to port. We’ll ask Sarah to call in using her satphone once we’re with her and she’s on her way in to port.
Sarah is in very good spirits, keen to row as best she can and enjoy her final push.
