Rory Steevenson, 01 Apr 2012 08:13 BST

To Liam and the Titan team. What an achievement! Your attention is drawn to the book of Job Ch32 v15: “They were amazed, they answered no more: they left off speaking.”
Antony Steevenson, 01 Apr 2012 07:54 BST

Good job admiral Festor, good job…
Va vibre et reviens…
Frank Bruno, 01 Apr 2012 06:56 BST

Just got on to the webcam – fine sunny day in Port Charles at about 1:30 in the afternoon; dark here in South Africa at 8:00 at night. Nothing much happening – saw one boat and a lady on her mobile! Go Titans.
Cathy van Zyl, 31 Mar 2012 19:02 BST

Will be watching that web cam at 01:00 South Africa time. Well done, TITANS
Cathy van Zyl, 31 Mar 2012 18:48 BST

You probably have just 12 nm to row as I write this. Well done Liam and the whole crew. Amazing achievement – enjoy the last few miles and a great party tonight. From your favourite wine importer! Nigel.
Nigel Blundell, 31 Mar 2012 18:34 BST

Stewart Hamilton, 31 Mar 2012 14:38 BST

Amazing achievement Noel and team. Congrats on a damn good time considering less than perfect conditions. Enjoy the rummers…even if they have to be administered by tube as you can’t lift your arms!
Jeff B, 31 Mar 2012 13:45 BST

Well Toby and crew, the end is in sight and fortunately there is a bright light at the end of the tunnel. Savour the moment, it will be unforgettable.
Ian and Denise, 31 Mar 2012 11:18 BST

Congratulations Liam to you and all your crew, Gerald would have been so very proud of you as I am! Lots of love grandma faye! Xxxxxxx:)

Lesley-Ann and Bruce x
lesley ann brunning, 30 Mar 2012 19:56 BST

Almost there! Hope you see land by now!!! Hurry the hell up and go party like rockstars! They have wild monkeys in Barbados so you can have entertainment while drinking your beer and eating your burgers! :) You will never love sand as much as you will tomorrow :)
Aleksa, 30 Mar 2012 18:42 BST

Toby – wishing you the best of luck during these last miles to Barbados. I am sure you will be exhausted and probably not interested in getting back in the water soon…but, don’t forget Soup Bowls is a fantastic surf spot!!! Great waves on Barbados nearly year round! Take care and will look forward to catching up when you return to Philadelphia! The Gesu kids would love to hear your story!
Seán Lavelle, 30 Mar 2012 17:04 BST

Less than 100miles to go!! Keep going. See you soon. Love Dad ( and Julia)

patricia knapp, 30 Mar 2012 02:42 BST

Liam and Crew, not far now. What an achievement and what a reception there’ll be waiting for you. Sorry the record wasn’t to be but sounds like you couldn’t really have helped it. Looking forward to hearing the war stories when you get back. Massive congratulations. Sam and Nicky
Sam and Nicky Steevenson, 29 Mar 2012 22:39 BST

Toby, just remember that achievement accomplished successfully, especially by means of exertion, skill, and perseverance lives forever, records are broken every day. Few people will ever achieve to this level. Congratulations to you all.
Ian and Denise, 29 Mar 2012 18:18 BST

Only a matter of hours until you set foot on dry land.
What are we all going to do every day now with no Titan to follow? You’re just going to have to turn around and go back again !!
M.Steevenson, 29 Mar 2012 17:46 BST

Well done to you all for doing so well. You should be thinking aobut what to order for your first meal, and finally sleeping in a bed that stays still!

Congrats Simon. Very proud to know you!
Nabs, 29 Mar 2012 17:22 BST

Bryan and Team Titan, It’s been such a joy watching your progress and somehow feeling like we are part of such an incredible accomplishment and for such a good cause. ALMOST THERE! Can’t you just smell the coffee and feel that hot shower!
June Rolon, 29 Mar 2012 16:44 BST

Bryan, We are waiting for our warrior to come home. Hopefully you’ll have stories to tell at the 4/20 Veterans Laura B. Viking Sock Burning Celebration! Proud as can be! You did your job well. Lots of attention now for CRI Vets. Chris
Chris Obusek, 29 Mar 2012 15:17 BST

ALMOST THERE! Bryan – what an amazing accomplishment! Have a great celebration on dry land with your team – just a few more days!!!!
carri, 29 Mar 2012 14:30 BST

Hey Guys. Well done to you all and the finish line is in sight now surely??? I bet the wish list of goodies you want on land is being made as I type this message. Incredible effort guys. Enjoy the last sprint to the finish.
Kevin Keane, 29 Mar 2012 14:10 BST

200 miles to go lads..
The oceans color will change, you’ll see the lights of barbados in the next 24 hours..And you’ll place the call for food..what a great feeling..and sad too..given that in the next few days it will be the last time that all Titans are in one place together…

Row hard and know that you accomplished a big thing..that will give a sense of satisfaction for the rest of your life..


Simon Chalk..Bravo to you..for putting this together and accomplishing 6 ocean rows..
Spirit of Britannia, 29 Mar 2012 06:36 BST

Hurray- nearly back on dry land. Cannot believe that in a few more days you will be one of the few who have rowed that Atlantic. You must be so proud of yourself- we couldn’t be prouder! Cannot wait to give our hero a humongous hug. Love you Liam, enjoy these last few days. Xxx
Kate & Olive, 29 Mar 2012 01:30 BST

Port St. Charles has hamburgers, french fries, beer, a pool, and SHOWERS! ROW FASTER!!!! Only a few more days til you party like rockstars!!!! :)
Aleksa, 28 Mar 2012 18:57 BST

Come on team Titan, 242nm to the finish line…keep it coming! Absolutely incredible!!!
Michael Reyburn, 28 Mar 2012 18:22 BST

so proud of my nephew Noel,to row the atlantic, just a handful of people can say that. Here come the Titans Barbados.
patricia knapp, 28 Mar 2012 18:18 BST

Noel and all you other heroes. What you’ve done is truly epic. Enjoy your welcome in Barbados- you’ve earned a fantastic celebration!
Susanne and Roy, 28 Mar 2012 17:39 BST

BRYAN! So proud of you and the team! You are almost there! :-) After you have been greeted on the dock by your beautiful Van, after you have had a drink and a burger and another drink and slept in a real bed and possibly the world has stopped rocking around you a bit, give me a call! I’ll only keep you for a few minutes but I just can’t wait to hear your voice! GO TEAM TITAN, YOU ARE ALMOST HOME! ROW HARD and BE PROUD!
Stewart Hamilton, 28 Mar 2012 17:21 BST

Hi Liam and Team Titan,
We can almost smell your success from here! Well done, nearly there and I am sure a cold ribena awaits. We are all delighted and so proud of you. Bravo!
Rory, Bill (if he’s up) and James (gone fishing!)
Rory Steevenson, 28 Mar 2012 16:46 BST

Come on Toby – finishing line in the distance!
Team EMD, 28 Mar 2012 13:14 BST

My patients who are veterans struggle every day with wounded bodies, minds and spirits. You’re rowing for them. Records broken will be broken again, but your efforts will help enable some brave men and women get their lives back. You are victors. Bend your oars for the west and bring it home gentlemen.
John Lowry, 28 Mar 2012 12:13 BST

Just a few more days, fearless Titans. Row!
From Hyperion: Deep in the shady sadness of a vale, Far sunken from the healthy breath of morn, Far from the fiery noon, and eve’s one star, Sat gray-hair’d Saturn, quiet as a stone, Still as the silence round about his lair.
Cathy van Zyl, 28 Mar 2012 10:45 BST

Just cant wait to have you home and to hear all your stories of this amazing trip. We couldnt be prouder of your achievement Liam – and all your team mates. ‘Life is a daring adventure’ and you have certainly just had one !!
Enjoy (?!) these last hours while they last with great celebrations to come and a new family member waiting to meet you! We are all very proud and love you. Mum & Dad and everyone xxxx
M & D Steevenson, 28 Mar 2012 09:15 BST

So the record’s not going to get broken this time, but you can be extremely proud of your efforts considering the crappy weather conditions you’ve had! I am convinced you would have smashed the record had the conditions been in your favour. Anyway, no matter… you are still Titans!!! All the best, Dom
Dom, 28 Mar 2012 07:47 BST

Keep up the great work Bryan and Team Titan! I’m brand new to rowing myself….2nd time out on the water this morning. Had a great time – thanks to CRI and the Military Rowing Program. Bryan, I appreciate what you’ve done to raise awareness for such a great organization!
Carmen, 28 Mar 2012 00:46 BST

Hey Bryan – almost to the finish line – can’t tell you how proud I am of you. This journey has been bigger than big. I’ve watched your progress daily, sometimes hourly, trying to imagine myself in your place. That’s not even possible to do. I have trouble talking myself into a 3 mile walk cause it’s only 40 degrees outside. lol. You are all heroes, remarkable individuals and winners in my book all day long. Wish I was there to greet you at the finish line. I’m there in heart and spirit and will surely toast to your success the minute you arrive at the dock. Love you
Diane Fleming, 28 Mar 2012 00:40 BST

Dig deep guys, no matter what the result we are soooo proud of you.
Ray and Elaine Watkins., 27 Mar 2012 19:15 BST

BRYAN! SOOO CLOSE! Can’t wait to hear you have landed! YOU CAN DO IT! Almost there! So very very proud of you all! GO GET “EM!
Stewart Hamilton, 27 Mar 2012 17:11 BST

Noel and the boys, not long now until you finish an amazing journey!!! Can’t wait to hear the stories. BBQ at our house!!!
Mike & Hilary, 27 Mar 2012 16:08 BST

We have been watching you from the start! We hope that you can beat the record! Time for the final stretch-oh yah!!! We are so proud of you for this great effort. I can’t imagine what a tough trip this has been for all of you! You’ll be resting soon! Congratulations! Home soon to see your loved ones! We would love to hear from you when you get back! :)
Life Skills Class, Silver Lake Regional High School, Kingston, MA, 27 Mar 2012 15:39 BST

Bryan! Pull hard! You guys are closing in to the finish, and I’m so proud of you. Can’t wait to hear the stories. Save the date: 4/20 for a sock burning party at CRI. You are a Viking!!! xo
KariAnne Kulig, 27 Mar 2012 14:39 BST

Come on Liam and crew! Nearly home,cold beer, showers and a nice bed beckon! I am so proud of your effort. Makes our little 4 miles around kingsbridge look very tame! Inspire each other to the end. Remember “The heart controls the mind and the mind controls the body.” All best wishes Bruce
Bruce, 27 Mar 2012 14:22 BST

Liam and the team, the messages written here are inspirational and show the love and support you have back home! What you are doing is more than inspirational and we are all so proud! Dig deep and row faster! Be safe and keep strong,
So so proud…all our love, les anglais en France
Jamie cowie, 27 Mar 2012 13:57 BST

You’re all an inspiration, keep up the good work!! Military rowers are on the water and we froze our a$$ off this morning…but totally worth it!
Whitney, 27 Mar 2012 13:55 BST

andrew, 27 Mar 2012 10:32 BST

Not long now guys!!! Uncle Noel, Jakob is going to share with all his friends at daycare about your amazing adventure!! They may even sing row row row the boat to inspire you guys from down in Nz.
Cindy, 27 Mar 2012 09:40 BST

Simon, Paul and the Titans, Not sure whether you can smell the finish line yet, but after 30 days gving it your all they can probably smell you !! Been following you all the way, give it your all for the last bit, fantastic effort! Mick
Mick Birchall, 27 Mar 2012 08:26 BST

Francky, Bon ben’ il va falloir que je me devoue pour faire patienter tes fan’eu ainsi que tes courtisannnn’, mais revien’ qu’en même pas trop tard, car mon corps ne resistera pas plus d’une semaine, car elles ont très très Faim……

Chris Obusek, 26 Mar 2012 21:59 BST

Wow – seriously cannot believe you are almost there!!!! Absolutely incredible!!!! Way to go, Bryan – and awesome job to your entire team!!!
Carri, 26 Mar 2012 19:22 BST

Hello Boys,

this little spot on the map seems so close from the target. You are just a few strokes from the end.

Patrick, I am sure that you will have thousands of little stories to tell when back! I am impatient to listen.

Be strong, keep safe, and you will se land very soon now!

Manu – a special ‘courage les gars’ for the French crew
Manu, 26 Mar 2012 19:13 BST

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel…
Almost there big guy, what an incredible achievement!
Thinking of you and your team out in the big blue…
Mikey, 26 Mar 2012 18:54 BST

There we go lads, you’re doing a fantastic job and picking up speed with light at the end of the tunnel…we’re behind you all the way.
Mikey, 26 Mar 2012 18:53 BST

what an amazing journey, Its time for the sprinting bods to show what they have got left. Do it to it.
patricia knapp, 26 Mar 2012 17:52 BST

Toby and crew, just a little tune to help you on your way (apologies to Monty Python)

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you’re chewing on life’s gristle
Don’t grumble, give a whistle
And this’ll help things turn out for the best…

And…always look on the bright side of life…
Always look on the light side of life…
Ian and Denise, 26 Mar 2012 17:07 BST

Not far now. Think of the nice glass of something cold waiting at the end after a fantastic achievement (again!!)
Jon Iliffe, 26 Mar 2012 16:01 BST

Thelema 1990 chardonnay at 08h30 this morning – it was part of a serious tasting! Last few days guys – row row row, you can still do it! Can anyone tell me what channel the finish will be televised on?
Cathy van Zyl, 26 Mar 2012 14:10 BST

Come on guys, almost there now. We’ll blow as hard as we can from this side of the Atlantic to help with the last few miles.
Love xx
Jamie & Ana, 26 Mar 2012 13:46 BST

It’s the home stretch now with just a few miles to go.
What an astounding achievement!
Looking forward to hearing all about it over a glass of something equally special as your accomplishment.
Junior Vianna, 26 Mar 2012 10:33 BST

Toby & Mates
I had a crew coach who would say, In a race we could always “smell” the finish line, thus motivating us to row all the harder. I am sure you can “smell” the finish line at this point. Finish strong.
Best wishes from your friends at Pennsylvania Barge Club in Philadelphia.
Paul Schugsta, 26 Mar 2012 03:01 BST

Words just don’t seem enough for you all to know the serious backing, support and admiration we dry landers have you all! Homeward straight, been great following your progression well done guys give it what for in this final stint. So close! X
Sonya Russell, 25 Mar 2012 22:18 BST

Hello Pat.,
courage pour les derniers jours d’effort… et de promiscuité! Franck doit connaître Philippe Croizon, qui est ici à Font-Romeu pour quelques semaines d’entraînement. Valides et invalides (ou supposés comme tels), vous méritez notre admiration pour votre détermination dans vos projets hors normes. Prenez soin de vous, si c’est dans le domaine du possible sur votre galère!
Daniel Hardelin
Daniel Hardelin, 25 Mar 2012 21:31 BST

Way to go Bryan! You are almost there its a great cause and amazingly inspirational.
Deb Van Blarcom, 25 Mar 2012 18:58 BST

Liam, Go Little Cous! Your uncle put me onto this and I’m now hooked – so impressed with what you and the team are doing. Not far now! Ignore all the sore bits, you’re nearly there! Love Nicky
Nicky Vereker, 25 Mar 2012 18:44 BST

Almost there daddy, just a few more days to go!!!. Go as fast as the wind!!!!!!
“hi daddy see you soon” love Tom !!
Loads of hugs and kisses from Maddy, Tom and Georgexxxxx
Maddy, George and Tom, 25 Mar 2012 18:25 BST

Allez les gars, le plus long est fait. La barre des 500 est franchie. Courage, vous pouvez maintenant fixer la ligne d’arrivée. Quand vous en bavez et que le moral baisse, rappelez-vous que vous n’êtes pas seuls. Nous vous suivons à distance.
Allez Totor, ne lâche pas et souquez fort. Félicitations à tes compagnons qui ne t’ont pas jeté par dessus bord.
JMS, 25 Mar 2012 10:26 BST

Alright Men! You guys are kicking serious seafaring butt! I’m truly in awe. Heroes come in many forms, and when mere mortals band together to pull off a stunt like this, well, that’s what elevates them to heroes in my book. I wish I could be there to welcome you back and see you take those first steps on terra firma – and buy the first round. Bryan and crew, you’re so amazingly awesome. Words cannot describe…
Robin, 25 Mar 2012 08:12 BST

Ahhh! 500 miles to go! Reminds me of a famous Scottish song:
“But I would row 500 miles, And I would row 500 more
Just to be that man who rows a thousand miles to fall down in Barbadooo-ooo-s…”
Right? Isn’t that how it goes??? :-)
Can’t wait to hear you are on DRY LAND! (Though with wobbly legs it might not seem like dry land for a while!) We are all pulling for you, you just keep pulling that boat! HUGS! Stewart
Stewart Hamilton, 24 Mar 2012 20:47 GMT

Liam and the rest of the team- really not much further now- stay positive and don’t get frustrated. Keep your eyes on the finish line and push with that! Im so proud of you Liam and can’t wait to meet you on the other side! All my love, catriona xxxxxx
Catriona Beeton, 24 Mar 2012 14:00 GMT

COME ON – GIVE IT SOME WELLIE – before the food runs out !! Mum xxxxxxx
M. Steevenson, 24 Mar 2012 09:53 GMT

Ma poule, à trois jours de la terre mais encore à trois ! Long, stressant et physique va être l’effort dernier. Courage à vous tous
FRANTZ, 24 Mar 2012 09:34 GMT

Can’t even imagine what this has been like.

Ruth Ricker, 24 Mar 2012 04:14 GMT

Bryan – UMass is in the NIT final four. Finish strong so you can see a game! Proud of you brother.
Matt Kapszukiewicz, 24 Mar 2012 03:48 GMT

Hey guys hope you are all well and in good spirits, was just thinking how quickly im forgetting what it was like and we’ve only been back 7 weeks.. Enjoy the finish there’s no feeling quite like it. Nearly there!! Helen xxx :)
Helen Leigh, 23 Mar 2012 23:56 GMT

Come on Noel and team, last few days now to get that record, awesome effort so far, thinking of you everyday, hoping the wind is helping you, dig deep!
Helen and Nick Strong, 23 Mar 2012 19:38 GMT

pauline Hamilton, 23 Mar 2012 18:39 GMT

You guys are so close! Not sure how close, but you must be able to smell the record. Row like the devil is after you!
Christopher Provost, 23 Mar 2012 18:36 GMT




je suis en train de prier pour que le vent soit puissant

et puisse vous aider!! ah les caraibes…

allez row !! 

LOURADOU, 23 Mar 2012 18:27 GMT

Gentlemen, put your backs into it – time for a final push. You can do it – come on. Hell, if I were any closer, I’d get in the water and kick!
Cathy van Zyl, 23 Mar 2012 09:55 GMT

Toby – just something to ponder while away from your office.
A man is rowing a boat and realises he is lost. He spots a man in another boat and shouts:
“Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?” The other man says: “yes you’re in a boat in the middle of the ocean”
 “You must work in Information Technology” says the lost man. “I do” replies the other man. “How did you know?” “Well” says the lost man, “everything you have told me is technically correct, but it’s no use to anyone.”
 The man says “you must work in management.” “I do” replies the lost man, “but how did you know?”
 “Well”, says the man, “you don’t know where you are, or where you’re going, but you expect me to be able to help. You’re in the same position you were before we met, but now it’s my fault.”

Ian and Denise, 23 Mar 2012 08:49 GMT

Home stretch , so close now. Love to you and the crew

Anna Alvsdotter, 22 Mar 2012 23:18 GMT

Hey Bryan & crew, awesome job out there! We’re all tracking you and astounded by the progress. Keep it up and looking forward to hearing all the stories!!
Tommy Marincic, 22 Mar 2012 23:16 GMT

“Oh, Eeyore, you are wet!” said Piglet, feeling him. 
Eeyore shook himself, and asked somebody to explain to Piglet what happened when you had been inside a river for quite a long time.”
Anna Alvsdotter, 22 Mar 2012 23:13 GMT

Hi Toby + team,
Keep up the great work!! AMAZING effort! We are willing some good weather towards you guys and look forward to hearing all about the adventure once you hit dry land. Good luck – nearly there!! Lots of love Anna, Rossco and Charlie x
Anna, Rossco and Charlie, 22 Mar 2012 23:13 GMT

“It’s snowing still,” said Eeyore gloomily.
“So it is.”
“And freezing.”
“Is it?”
“Yes,” said Eeyore. “However,” he said, brightening up a little, “we haven’t had an earthquake lately.” 
Anna Alvsdotter, 22 Mar 2012 23:12 GMT

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”
“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”
“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.” 
Anna Alvsdotter, 22 Mar 2012 23:06 GMT

Go on Si…keep pushing to the finish line mate, you can do it!…you deserve it mate, make sure you get it now!!! Ben
Ben Thackwray, 22 Mar 2012 22:23 GMT

Not far to go now… You’ll soon be tucking into steak & chips, washed down with a couple of cold ones! Oh, and a nice shower and no rowing!!
Dom, 22 Mar 2012 21:48 GMT

this is VERY exciting….you might just do it. jane has just asked me who i’m talking to….sad old git i was talking to the computer screen, cheering you on. love geoff allum.
geoff allum, 22 Mar 2012 21:47 GMT


I’m sure you rowed the first 25 days on your own! Allow your other crew member to row the last day or two so they can have a little credit….lol. Congrats to you and you team on an amazing feat and incredible endurance. I’m sure you guys will DESTROY the record.

God Bless,

Justin Spencer of AKA Rittenhouse Square.
Justin Spencer of AKA Rittenhouse, 22 Mar 2012 21:01 GMT

Great going team,I see you are on a favourable course and you have picked up the pace , gearing up for the last few days and final run to the finish.awesome work.I took my hat off a long way back to you guys.

Good luck all.

albert thompson, 21 Mar 2012 22:53 GMT

Bryan and the crew- I want to say how very proud we are of all of you. Everyday to track your progress and can only imagine how tough it is. Keep up the great work on your final stretch!
Esa and Nicole, 21 Mar 2012 22:23 GMT

Come on boys you can do it. We got up to see you off in Mogan and have been tracing you all the way.
Olwen, 21 Mar 2012 21:22 GMT

Very much on the homeward run- all totally exhausted at this end just monitoring your progress!! Suspect ‘I Spy’ is loosing its appeal but.the cry ‘land ahoy’ is not far away so go for that final push! Suddenly circumnavigating the Eddystone in Marugo seems a trifle tame in comparison. Lots of love – Mum & Dad Steevenson xx
C & M Steevenson, 21 Mar 2012 19:48 GMT

Alors Festor on veut pas rentrer à la maison??? Rame matelot, rame… La Corse est derrière toi et tes friend’s.

Cindy and family, 21 Mar 2012 07:51 GMT

Congrats team, 
You’ve passed the mid-atlantic rift. Don’t let outside forces distract you..keep focused on achieving a great feat that will be with you for the rest of your lives. I sense significant hostility from Roy Finley..Maybe an offshore sacrifice is in order..
The Spirit of Britannia 3, 21 Mar 2012 05:22 GMT

Go Team Titan, willing you on from Down Under!

Team Titan – Stay strong and row hard. You are doing an amazing job!! So proud of you!
Jessica McKenna, 20 Mar 2012 21:54 GMT

Hope your 5 days left of food is Superman fuel mixed with Irn Bru & Red Bull. Keep at it, the land of Barbados, known for its real food, proper beds & even bathrooms is calling. In Jurgen Grobler’s words: “Toby, more power in ze finish” xo
Claire Wallace, 20 Mar 2012 21:49 GMT

Bryan and crew – if you’re getting pummeled by flying fish in the night, just remember you’ll get your revenge in Barbados – they dont smell nearly as bad when they’re cooked! KEEP ON ROWING! You’ve got this :)
Aleksa, 20 Mar 2012 16:32 GMT

Hi Toby fantastic progress, well done, keep on rowing you are nearly there – does it hurt as much as Stinging Trees? Stay well, our thoughts are constantly with you and the crew and we look forward to seeing you soon. love Mum and Dad
Denise Wallace, 20 Mar 2012 08:43 GMT

Writing a press release for the South African National Bottled Water Association (the chairman, bless his huge fins, is off diving with sharks at Aliwal Shoal) so of course, if it’s liquid, it makes me think of the Titans! Come on, guys – you are nearly, nearly, nearly there. You can do it! The good weather is coming. 
Cathy van Zyl, 20 Mar 2012 08:37 GMT

Rock it my friend. Sending you and the crew good weather vibes from Seattle. Bring it home quick with some big days! 
Jordan Hanssen, 20 Mar 2012 06:02 GMT

So close to Hallin and with no wind. Come on weather…give them a shunt in the right direction! Great effort guys. Keep on pulling!
Cashy, 20 Mar 2012 04:56 GMT

Bryan, thought I’d send you some fun memories to give you a chuckle – here goes: 1) the realization that our buddy was like Stewie from Family Guy… Tight parking spots and all! 2) your ulterior motives for providing an endless supply of candy. 3) that 6-month period of time about 3 years ago when everyone was obsessed with your homemade hot sauce (which I’d like more of, by the way). 4) you holding the title as the first and only person in the history of the planet to actually get bitten by our cat! Hang in there… You’re on the home stretch! Keep on rowin’!!
See you soon!! Hugs! Dunyelle
Dunyelle , 20 Mar 2012 04:50 GMT

Barney Durrant, 19 Mar 2012 21:10 GMT

Hey, Bry Bry. Congratulations on your 22 days and 17 hours of progress. We are keeping our eyes on you!! God’s speed. Are you hungry? 
Carol and Susan, 19 Mar 2012 20:31 GMT

Noel & team, Wishing could send these 110k winds, you need them more than we do in NZ, stay strong, truly mad but amazing effort!
j, 19 Mar 2012 19:53 GMT

Hey fellas. It’s been a few days since my last chat but I did say I was going to have a few drinks of the black stuff and toast to you guys on every sip. Well thats the reason for the radion silence, lets just say I have only just recovered-ish…. Not long to go now guys, I am sure your hurting but as that saying goes, pain is temporary and Glory is forever. You guys can do this, we all know you can. Just dig deep and get accross that finish line. 
Kevin Keane, 19 Mar 2012 18:44 GMT

Well England smashed Ireland 30 – 9! Rather ruined their St Patricks day celebrations! The final push. Dig in, you are doing awesome! Keep safe Bruce
bruce brooker, 19 Mar 2012 15:21 GMT

Come on Simon, bring that record back to the classic route or do you need Leven or myself to show you how to do it next year ? One more week of a big push,, you have the boat, crew and shortly the weather…..hurry up!
Roy Finlay, 19 Mar 2012 12:49 GMT

Go for it Toby mate, end is in sight! Push push push! keep safe and god speed to the whole crew. Dave

frantz, 19 Mar 2012 07:51 GMT

Hey Bryan!
Looks from the map like you are getting closer and closer! LOVE IT! Also looks like you are passing over the longest mountain ranges in the world, the Mid-Atlantic Ridge! OK, yes, there is a mile of water between you and them but wave down to them for me, OK? Thinking of you! Stay strong! Stewart
Stewart Hamilton, 19 Mar 2012 01:47 GMT

Tracking you everyday, and can’t believe you have the last bit to go. To say I’m proud is an understatement. Love you and can’t wait to hear all the stories you are experiencing. 
Victoria Fuller, 19 Mar 2012 01:36 GMT

Hello Uncle Liam! Your niece Olive Dove Shephard has arrived at last – on Mothers Day !!! All well and very happy!

Hi Toby, Just out of Tassie wilderness and good to see you guys are still in the hunt. Took along a bottle of Talisker (decanted) and it sure came in handy. Even managed to raise a glass to you boys (and Claire). When you get there we will raise another. George, Fred, Bob and Rich.
Rich McGrath, 18 Mar 2012 07:31 GMT

Sorry I’m late with your birthday wishes, Liam – but you know how Africa time works! Keep it up, Team Titan – you are doing so well. Mouton Rothschild and Brane-Cantenac tasted great at a lecture last night; pity not from a better vintage.
Cathy van Zyl, 16 Mar 2012 06:25 GMT

And I thought you were tough when you scaled a home to avoid being killed by a rhino! Still have glass in my hand from that little escape. Row man row! Seriously bad a$$!
Michael , 16 Mar 2012 02:43 GMT

Hey Noel. St.paddys day tomorrow and I will be mostly drinking the black stuff and every sip will be in your honor. I will be informing everyone how courageous my mate is and his crew mates and how they are going to smash that record to peices because they are made of stuff only those who dare to test themselves to the max are made of. Go boys, row..! We are all behind you..
Kevin Keane , 15 Mar 2012 23:03 GMT

I did not realise this little jaunt was so dependent on the waves, the currents and the wind….I could have told you that Liam always had a problem with wind, but I guess you know that by now! 
Keep strong, keep safe

Tony Williams, 14 Mar 2012 21:15 GMT

With apologies to R.C. Lehman:

“I met a solid rowing friend and asked about the Race. “How fared it with the wind,” I said,”When stroke increased the pace?
You swung it forward mightily, you heaved it greatly back.
Your muscles rose in knotted lumps, I almost heard the crack.”
And while we roared and rattled too, your eyes were fixed like glue.
What thought went flying through your mind, how fared it, eight, with you?”
But Eight made answer solemnly, “I heard them fire a gun, “No other mortal thing I heard until the Race was done.”

Onward to Barbados, gentlemen! You’re doing great! Looking forward to your imminent success.
Christopher Provost, 14 Mar 2012 20:51 GMT

Leeroy! you little star hope your doing good my love. is so impressive thinking of you all go hard or go home!!!!!! lots of love x
Lucy Rossi, 14 Mar 2012 18:00 GMT

G’day Noel and Crew, 
From the Crew on Aurora B in Florida we are all hoping for the NE winds to push you closer to Barbados and smash that 30 day mark. Have Mt Gay Rum ready to celebrate your finish!! Go forth and conquer this record….Stroke!
Grant Heffernan, 14 Mar 2012 16:29 GMT
