Hello All,

I started a thread under 'cruising' on a similar topic. I'm planning to do this trip in August 2007 (during Cows Week) with 3 other Ocean Rowers and would really like to get a few similarly minded people together to keep me company.

Is anyone interested in doing a recce run this year?


G.

After Trafalgar I would want to be VERY sure of the organisation, legal / safety issues (Which I can't discuss on the web but PM me if interested) and logisitics before joining.

There are many issues that Mike has with organising RB 2008.I think it unlikely he won't have this one in hand or already sorted.

If I'm not mistaken, a fuel supplier was organised months ago - a fellow racer actually!
