Heads Together and Row: Day 40

Ali Heads Together mtime20190120180321

Heads Together and Row have now spent 40 days at sea and have rowed 2055 miles since they started their journey back in December.

During this period, the team have enjoyed spending time getting to know each other better and sharing their life stories. Although two of the team, Toby and Jeremy, have known each other for many years, as a team of four this will be the longest amount of time they will have spent all together - and in such a confined space. By now they have all inspected each other's bottoms on a regular basis, established who cheats at I Spy (Ali and Justin) and who spent several days accidentally wearing their pants back to front (also Justin). It is safe to say they know each other pretty well by this point!

Here's Ali discussing how she hopes the bonds of friendship will be strengthened during the race.

As of 1600 GMT on day 40, here’s how the team are getting on:

Position: 17 degrees 27.28 N, 050 degrees 10.26 W

Speed/Direction: 2.2 knots @ 260 degrees

Distance rowed: 2055 Nautical Miles (2364 Miles)

Distance to go: 664 Nautical Miles (764 Miles)

12th in Fours crews

16th overall
