The second day of the race was spent hunting down the current race leaders, Black Oyster and also the 2005 world record position. We are finding the Yellowbrick tracker app is very useful – today Neil downloaded it for his iPad. Tomorrow the team will be nearing the Solent, after another long night at sea. We feel we are properly on the way now, and are settling into the routine. It is really exciting to be finally putting all the training into practice. Weather is still good, with everyone’s mood positive and eager to keep powering on. This would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors, in particular John Giddens at Hallin Marine. Thank you for all your help.
Team Hallin: one island, one aim, one record
Having obtained the world record for the Atlantic East-West Route in 2011, Team Hallin set their sights on the world record to row non-stop and unsupported around mainland Great Britain. The team entered the Round GB Row Race 2013, starting in London on 1st June 2013 with their new four man team and boat Hallin Marine II. Unfortunately, they had to retire from the race after being taken in tow off Land’s End after suffering steering problems compounded by 30 knot headwinds and a foul tide.
