Soggy Sandwiches

Day 13 and the team feel like they haven’t had a day on board when something hasn’t broken… Fingers crossed today will be their lucky day.

Expedition HQ have recieved the first set of images from the team since they left La Gomera on December 7th (see above and top right). We are hoping to upload Debbie’s first witten blog on the official Row For Freedom website this afternoon, so watch this space….

After an eventful weekend with choppy waters and strong currents, the girls have had a few water problems in their cabin thanks to a faulty hatch. As a result, this has left some of the expedition food in a rather soggy state, so the team have been forced to move everything on deck to dry in the sun.

Alongside this, the additional water has made The Guardian slightly heavier than usual, meaning extra muscle required from the team!

Click here to listen to Kate Richardson’s latest voiceblog when she tells us all about The Guardian’s water problems and how the team have found a new method to dry all their clothes!

Lovely girls -heard about you today (Christmas Eve) on Sat Live. What a wonderful thing you are doing – the ver thought appals me as I sit in my nightie reading all about you! I can’t swim so such a trip would be a nightmare for me! I shall keep you all in my prayers until you are safely on terra firma. You are right – you need to keep happy but also keep on loving one another – your fellowship together is so important for each ohne of you. May God keep you all. Much love to you and what a wonderful Christmas to look back on in later life – and to tell your children about!!! Happy sailing! Myra

Hi Kate and friends You are doing a great job and with a smile even when the going is hard, and your food and clothes are wet. That is the true spirit of commitment. I pray Gods blessings on you all. Keep you safe. Angels to watch over you all and guide you to the end of your journey. Love Jennyxx
