Angels cross Indian Ocean

Congratulations to the Ocean Angels for successfully rowing across the Indian Ocean!

This morning the all female crew arrived in Mauritius after a 78 day row from Western Australia. The straight line route would have been 3,132 nautical mile but as can be seen from the course above the wind and current pushed them off the rumb line.

I was lucky to meet one of them, Fiona, at the boats and other things show in Earls Court December last year.

As well as an amazing personal achievement they have made their way into the record books being the first all female crew to cross that Ocean and also aim to raise £ 50,000 for the charity Breast Cancer Care.

I think they have totally deserved the cold beers that must have been waiting for them on arrival!
