Dan & Will have had a busy couple of weeks, from celebrating Christmas and New Year to Dan's 29th birthday as well as gaining speed after cleaning their bottom.
After a three week head-to-head battle with 2 Boys In A Boat, Dan & Will have overtaken them and gained first place in the pairs category. The next challenge they face is overtaking the last remaining solo rower Adventure 4 A Cure, this would put them not only at the top in pairs but fourth overall!
Travelling between 2.5-3 knots cleaning the barnacles off the bottom of Blue Steel definitely helped secure the space between their fellow pairs. With nearly just 1,000 miles left in the race they are set to land ashore on 29th January, however this could change dramatically against or in their favour depending on weather conditions as they get closer to the finish line.
