The Atlantic Guardsman take to the water! Thanks very much to Rannoch for delivering our boat on time and for their assistance in getting us on the water and away. Angus from Rannoch took us out for a training row. It was reasonable weather and we were able to make it go forward! We went out on out own for a day as well. The weather wasn't so kind - but as John said, "If it's not raining, you're not training".
That's the good news. The bad news is that Dean has broken his leg and was unable to join us - so it was only three of us on The Atlantic Guardsman's maiden voyage. It is unlikely that Dean will be able to make the race, so we are on the look out for a fourth crewman. Watch this space.
