    hi sarah,great tohear from you again.your positivefocus in such trying circumstances is really uplifting and inspirational,a few nights ago I was watching the estuary in flat calm with a slight breeze and wishing for a while we could swop sea states just to give you a push in the right Canada wise direction,guess I was not wishing hard enough!hope you can get out and about soon and put somemiles on the clock!

    Good to hear you lastest broadcast. Imagine three days in the tiny cabin would test most people; be nice to have positions ocassionally ( we could put an atlas on the crew wall and chart progess or lack of it!). All very glad to have met you when you came and have a real feeling of empathy with you. Row well. Simon and crew

      Hi Simon,
      Sarah’s latest position can be seen on the tracker page (click on link on home page). By zooming in on the yellow marker, the latest known position co-ordinates can be read. There is also now a miles travelled table on the website (The Mission page). Hopefully, these will give you enough data to plot Sarah’s course accurately. Let’s hope Sarah starts going in the right direction again! Thanks for your best wishes.

    You are an inspiration, that’s for sure! Being strong is so much more than physical strength. I am upping the calming thoughts that I’m sending your way. You are nice and calm, now we need to get the ocean calmed down too so you get can out, breath in some good fresh air and row, row, row.

    Reminds me of a watery version of snakes and ladders – just when you think you’re really getting somewhere, whoosh, you’re propelled backwards again, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Lots of time to think and potentially feel frustrated, but, as you say, you’re in it for the long game – and six months is certainly a long game. I would imagine it’s best not to start to even try and imagine what it will be like on a day-to-day kind of level. Definitely a case of go with the flow – literally – especially as you don’t have any other option! Think calm and wait for the ocean and the weather to follow suit. Keep on listening to Winnie the Pooh, and bask in the reassurance that you are FAR more suited to rowing an ocean than Eeyore would be!!!!

    Hi Sarah, Good to hear how upbeat you are despite the frustrating progress. Your attitude is so spot on, it would drive you insane to be otherwise. Have never been into Winnie the Pooh but maybe I should have a look see and he seems to be a sensible, reliable companion.
    All the best

    Hi Sarah

    Great to hear your positive spirit, keep your pecker up !

    If you managed to copy the music I gave you last year – search out Upojenie under the Pat Metheny folder or Migration under Peter Kator / Carlos Nankai … both might help with your incarceration.

    If you didn’t save them then I will send them to you in Vancouver ha ha.

    Cheers P

    Thumbs up to Pooh Bear. I’m glad you’ve got some entertaining companions to keep you company at what must be a very frustrating time. I hope, when the wind changes, you are pushed forward more quickly than you’ve been pushed backwards Sarah. The very best of British luck for the 6 months ahead of you.
