Today it has really become a race! Thanks to everyone following on Twitter/Facebook or checking our website, the messages of support really help. We’re making steady progress against our main rivals, the world record time and crew Black Oyster. It was challenging in the choppy seas and strong tides around the Isle of Wight but we were able to maintain a good rhythm. The team are all enjoying looking over to shore when they can, Stu remembered cycling in Sussex and told some excellent stories which kept Neil and him amused on their chilly evening watch! Please keep donating to Combat Stress, thank you if you already have!
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.
