Friend of this blog SmadaNek has been following the progress of the Shepherd Ocean Fours rowing race. Take a look:
This is really a phenomenal race — four teams of rowers (four men each) set out from New York on June 10th, bound for Falmouth, England. Twenty days into the race, three of the teams have covered over 1,000 miles. The fourth had a mechanical failure and is safely back in port.
The enormity of this task is really daunting — take a look at this map to get a feel for what they’ve accomplished and what they have left to do (the rings are 500 nautical miles each!):
Send the rowers a message, or donate to charity. Go to Smadanek to find out how.
