Day 25 - ATLANTIC OCEAN: While the team get excited about the halfway marker news from Locura in 1st position acts as a harsh reminder that the second half of the journey remains equally as challenging, with the added problem of exhaustion. Locura received an unwelcome visitor yesterday in the form of a 6 meter long shark which actually went for their rudder and then their hull causing damage to t heir boat.

Despite the very real and brutal environment of the Ocean APT remain in 3rd position and at the 4pm update had rowed the exact same distance in the last 25 day's at sea as inspiring fleet buddies Row2Recovery. Here is to the #R2RChase and a safe and speedy crossing for all as the fleet move into the second half of the race.
