We concentrated our efforts today on getting ahead of the world record pace. Neil was checking the Yellowbrick tracker app on his iPad, apparently there are lots of people glued to this app – even more than us! We were off the Dorset and Devon coast today, David had navy memories of war games chasing submarines in Portland and Plymouth and deep-diving training in Falmouth with main sponsor John Giddens of Hallin Marine Subsea Services. Julian is looking forward to getting past Land’s End and beginning the next leg of the race. Feeling strong and in control, our tactics are working well.
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.
