    You made it through the storm, but what do you do in the middle of a storm when you need to use the louuuuu..hold on or count sheep…:)?
    take care your always in our thoughts

    And now I’M whooping and hollering that the storm is behind you and all is well!! Love that you’ve been able to enjoy a bit of sunshine and fresh air from inside the cabin and that you may be able to get some rowing in in the very near future!! Woooohoooooooo!!

    Congrats to your brother and new sister-in-law..may they share many happy years together!

  3. Splendid that you have a good day with sunshine. I would be interested to know your actual procedure for rowing in the correct direction. When you pull up the sea anchor and begin to row, are you watching a GPS device and can see every degree or tick on the screen? With all the wind and stormy bashing about it must be quite weird for orientation, especially in the fog or reduced light conditions.

    Pleased to hear that you weathered the storm and to hear you sounding so positive. We are willing you north every day,

    Best wishes,

    fantastic news that you got through it with help from chimpy,happy socks and hopefully the good wishes of us all!great to hear you in such good spirits and making the most of this(reasonably)benign period as you edge to Adak island,love the image of you belting out hymns at your brothers wedding while bobbing about in the pacific!desert island discs is such a tonic,ready for the new season now!happy trails!

  6. Maybe the BBC should introduce ‘Happy Socks Discs’: what tracks you would take with you on a rowing boat on an ocean expedition? But what better than a wedding to keep up one’s spirits! 🙂 And it’s good to see that your route is settling down again after the recent GPS ‘cat’s cradle’. Continued good fortune Sarah…

    Great news hearing you weathered the storm and all is well for the moment.

    Interesting hearing that you did not capsize in the biggest waters thus far. If your theory is correct that the rudder may have factored in to prior capsize’s than that is quite insightful for future rowers.

    Looking at your position this morning it appears you are in a SE flow for the moment. Hopefully that will change soon. Thinking of you as always, Romano.
