Dr. Stein Hoff began his row across the Atlantic on Sunday morning May 15th, 120 years after George Harbo and Frank Samuelsen.
Here’s his facebook link to track his voyage.
Day 41, Friday 24th June.
I got dressed to go out and set the SA after supper last night when the rain eased, the fog lifted, the wind died and a pink horizon appeared!
I had meant for a while to secure the two big shackles on the SA assembly with seizing wire, got that done by the light of my head torch and retired to the cabin again. It had become noticeably cooler. The calmest night for a while followed as we drifted N 0,5-1,0 k.
This morning the clouds and rain are back, forerunners of a deep low that according to Diana’s warning will pass me this ‘pm’ (I misread this as ‘am’ first). Temp outside 16 C this morning and lowest for a while, so again condensation is running down my hatches and slowly dripping from the metal fittings.
If the rain eases, I will of course get out and row. If the drift the wrong way gets worse I’ll get out the SA. As indeed I will when/if the wind and waves get nasty. Meanwhile the ocean rower is demoted to moisture mopper and hatch wiper.
And do not forget: It’s Friday! Hope you have a nice week- end!
