…Looping the loop! Or at least that is the plan and the hope that we can continue making progress West. Six more nauties West and we’ll have made up the miles lost to the East over the last few days. I’m rowing across SSW swell/wind so progress isn’t rapid but its progress nonetheless. Crossing the 90th parallel, which had seemed so close a few days away, now looks like a goal for next week. Still, then it’s just three more degrees until half way across. Frustratingly it is super overcast too and so my batteries aren’t fully juiced up, so I’ve had no music for a few days again and I am not enjoying the silence today. Or my singing! Perhaps if there are any bands/minstrels/buskers/singers/choirs etc etc passing through the area then they might like to pop round and put on a little open ocean concert?
Righty, we’ve some miles to make up and a loop to finish looping…
Ah yes, almost forgot – Woman’s Hour, BBC R4 this Thursday 21st May (10am ish), I’ll be speaking to Jenni Murray (Hopefully from some place a bit closer to Mauritius!)

I won’t be able to speak to any other rowers on the VHF unless I can see them – it only works on line of sight. Probably Max 3 nautical miles on a calm day for boats of our diminutive size. A mid ocean rendez vous would be complete chance! Serendipity even.
I’ll podcast again next week; too busy making up the miles today…
