Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge

Brass Monkeys

Fortunately we were blessed with great weather over the Christmas period. Why spend this time at home in the warm watching TV and eating mince pies when we can be out on the River Crouch on the boat! I am not sure if my wife was completely behind me on this one but came along as my rowing buddy anyway. I also roped my youngest to help out during the launch.

The weather was freezing and the boat was covered in ice. Fortunately we took plenty of coffee and cake.

My wife is going to murder me for putting her picture on the website!

4 days rowing completed.

Boat launch down the slip.
No danger of blisters here. Just frostbite!
Come on Hon! Put your back into it!
