Heads Together and Row: Day 7

Heads Together and Row 081 mtime20180314151934

As they approach the end of their first week at sea, Heads Together and Row continue to make good progress in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2018.

An update from the race safety officers this afternoon says the fleet is in 'pretty good shape' on its seventh day on the water.

Sadly one of the 28 competing crews has had to withdraw from the race following technical problems.

The update for our team says: "Heads Together and Row are now 18th in the fleet. Having discussed route and conditions they are in good spirits. As well as reporting amazing night skies they have also been lucky enough to see whales."

Many other teams are reporting similar issues with adapting to life at sea as Toby mentioned yesterday, including sea sickness, minor aches and pains and power concerns.

If you're wondering what life is like aboard Trilogy, here is a recent video update we received from Alison.

As of 1600 GMT on day 7, here’s how the team are getting on:

Position: 24 degrees 25.87 N, 021 degrees 32.30 W

Speed/Direction: 2.4 knots @ 241 degrees

Distance to go: 2292.7 Nautical Miles (2638.3 Miles)

13th in Fours crews

18th overall
