Once again we have spoken with the crew onboard Saga to bring you the latest updates on the rowing expedition. Ideally the crew would be rowing between 3-4 nautical miles, however they were experiencing speeds below 3 nautical miles today. Although the satellite signal is unreliable, the crew is in a fantastic mood, and are looking forward to catching some fish this evening. The conditions at sea are excellent with little to no waves and no winds, and some dolphins were kind enough to pay the crew a visit. Currently the Saga craft with its crew members is located at 34.20° north and 11.02° west.
The crew is expecting to be between Maderia and Canaria Islands in approximately a week, although they were hoping to achieve this sooner. The crew is optimistic about rowing across the Atlantic in the 60 days or less, which was the goal when they set out to sea, despite the first 30-35 hours being slower than anticipated.
The crew sends their regards to their families, friends and everyone who is supporting the cause and following them on their rowing expedition!
