June 03 09.00 BLOG from Heather Rees-Gaunt of Oarsome Adventures on Boudica. Oarsome Adventures are back in the race! We told you we wouldn’t give up. After hours of trials and tribulations and some Playschool repairs, our skipper Mikey Buckley got the water maker working at last. The crew had their first cup of coffee this morning, since leaving London on Saturday. Sam Clemmens was the poor man who tasted the water and drank quite a bit of sea water. But now we have lovely fresh water.
The auto helm as also been repaired, using a piece of metal from the flagpole! While the repairs were going on we couldn’t use one of the cabins and it was a bit cramped on deck, while the crew were rowing. We are now back in our routine and we’re hunting down Hallin Marine 2 who are in second place.
Baby dolphins have been swimming around Boudica. It’s a wonderful world today. We’re all thoroughly enjoying being at sea.
