Due to adverse weather conditions the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2013 has been officially delayed until Wednesday 4th December 2013 at 12:00 GMT
Some of the teams here are very grateful for the delay as this gives them some time to put last minute touches to their boats. We will be using this extra time to resize our oars and work on our autopilot as it broke down on us last minute. After these changes have been made we intend to relax with our friends and family and not to think about what lies ahead!
Although this time is valuable to us we have mixed feelings as the delay means that our friends and family will miss seeing us set off. However, this does mean we can get all the goodbyes out of the way so that we can get into the zone and get our game faces on in time for the off.
Although we are enjoying the time off to relax with our families though - now we are ready to get on with the challenge and row hard to Antigua.
