THOMAS CREMONA: Blog update – 5th January 2011

The moment has finally arrived! The latest weather forecast shows ideal climate conditions to commence the row across the Atlantic! The crew is eager to row into the records books. We are all confident that, given favourable weather conditions throughout the voyage, we can set a new world record for the mid-Atlantic row.

The past two nights gave us the opportunity to recover from the row to Tarfaya. The stay in Tarfaya also helped to further integrate the team into a rowing force to be reckoned with! Sara G is ready, with all equipment checked and double checked.

At 2.20pm (Malta time), we leave the port of Tarfaya and, with determination, set out to claim a new world record!
