96stat miles on day 20 really lifted the guys. unfortunately the currents have turned again and we are in for another hard slog. Its ok though. At this point we are most comfortable. we have got used to life on an ocean rowing boat. I can see how people can do a 100+ days at sea. The nights are more pleasant to row in. Its the mid day shift which is most hard. It is scorching.
I saw a photo of myself today and I am getting a bit more “ribby”. I have lost weight around my biceps, waist and pectorals. I guess i am more gaunt in the face. obviously my back is a bit broader. I guess it is the body adapting to its surroundings. I would be interested in weighing myself now. I feel strong and healthy.
incase you are wondering what we eat each day we get in each ration pack for 24 hrs.
3 dehydrated meals (these are pretty good, flavours include, green thai curry, chicken tikka masalla, spaghetti, beef and ale stew, chicken rice and veg, lamb and pearl barley etc) 600 cals each
4 choc ba
1 super noodle
1 cup a soup
1 hot choc
1 fruit bar (300+cals)
1 nut bar (300 cals)
cod liver oil caps
2 teas with milk
We nearly caught 2 dorado yesterday. They both got away when we tried to land them. I have got some good video footage. Livar and Peter are having a competition to see who catches the first fish. The loser has to wear Bennos tighty whitey y fronts when arriving in Barbados. It wont be a good look.
