GBRow 2013 race winners and new Guinness World Record holders, the Islanders, have posted a message of thanks to everyone who supported them every inch of the way through their epic journey of 26days 09hours and 09minutes:
“We would just like to say thank you. Thank you for all your messages, support, encouragement and enthusiasm. After only a few hours back on dry land we came to realise it really wasn’t just the four of us in that little boat.
“It was every single person checking the yellow brick tracker day and night. Calculating distance and speed, scanning the weather reports, ringing major shipping ports so we wouldn’t be run down and, of course, donating to our charity.” Josh Taylor, Alan Morgan, James Plumley and Gavin Sheehan.
