it's good to see that after your days of sitting about enjoying yourselves in the storm you have now got back to the business of rowing across that" little puddle" go guys and power your way to the finish line. Helen you were missed today at home as we had an Alderton family get together they are all now dot watching ( especially Auntie Lesley) and send you all their love and the same goes for us all our love Mum & Dad XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Jimmy Rankin said:   May 24, 2009 8:47 am PST
WOW!!!!!! Look at you go. The down days and the bad weather must of mad you guys mad. You have been moving about 40% faster that any other boat in the fleet. I canâ??t wait to see you back at home to hear all of the details. I have on occasion woke up in the middle of the night and been laying in bed checking your progress on the BBerry. Keep up the excellent workâ?¦.Row hard. I do believe that you have the entire eastern half of Wyoming keeping tabs on you. Only 159nm to the Bexhill Trust Challenger.

We are on the edge of our seats watching your progress! You all are amazing. Nathanael has a school project based around you. Even he is hooked on dot-watching.

Doug and Audeamus---keep up the good work...hope the weather improves.....remember....One decision in life is when to give up or try harder..No one has ever drowned in sweat...

Sandra Tumminello said:   May 20, 2009 6:55 pm PST
Hi Doug and crew of Audeamus Sounds like you're in really bad rowing weather. You're catching up, slowly but surely. How bout rowing faster? We're all anxious to get you home! AJ graduates the 17th, one of the days predicted for you to hit shore. Just be assured that all of you have a big prayer covering. God is good! Sandra

Neill & Hazel said:   May 20, 2009 12:41 pm PST
Hi Helen, lovely to speak to you today, you sounded very upbeat!!!! You are all doing brilliant and we are very, very proud of you. We have no doubt that you will achieve your ambition. Hope the weather soon abates and you can get on your way again. Love you very much Mum & Dad

Tim Buddle said:   May 19, 2009 4:36 am PST
Hi Ian Mother has been on the phone again to tell me all about another of your crazy schemes! She wanted me to tell you off, but what's the point. Good luck mate to you and the crew! Hope to see you soon. Tim

Joe and Karen said:   May 18, 2009 9:03 am PST
Doug - Audeamus - every morning at work we get our coffee and then turn on the computer to check your progress and see what the news of the day is. We are all praying for you and cheering you on. Keep rowing, you are making alot of people proud. even those that only know you thru us.

Hello Helen (Taylor), that's a feat of endurance and a half you're on! It's staggering that you've just gobbled up over a thousand miles like that :-O Keep going and *eventually* you will make Mauritius. This has been an astonishing act of bravery, may the gods be with you :-)

Sarah Watts said:   May 15, 2009 8:33 am PST
Helen Hi! Just about falling off my seat at Jocelyn's fantastic seahorse fact. Some things never change. I guess the Boston Marathon seems like a walk in the park right now!? Thinking of you hugely and hope you guys are all doing good. Just remember 'Motivation is what gets you started. habit is what keeps you going' and Winners never quit and quitters never win! Cheers Sarah & Al x

Jeremy Strom said:   May 15, 2009 7:32 am PST

To my wonderful husband Ian, we are very proud of you and all the AudEamus crew! The boys are training for an adventure with you - Cameron is becoming an impressive rower and Alex wants to come to the 'ord ole' with you! We love you and miss you but live every moment to the fullest while on AudEamus. Thank you for your little suprises!

Ian Couch said:   May 13, 2009 12:39 am PST
Ian wants Heather, his amazing wife, and Cameron and Alex, his wonderful boys, that he loves them very much. He wants them to know that he is rowing and doing all that he can to get back home to them as quickly as possible.

Valerie said:   May 12, 2009 9:58 am PST
Doug and crew, keep up the great work! Your progress is impressive. Be safe.

Joe and Karen said:   May 12, 2009 7:02 am PST
Hey Doug...heard from Mike and he is coming to the branding with his boss...we will miss you not teaching the "new guys" Branding 101..guess they will have to figure it out themselves.....we are all watching your progress...keep up the good work!

Don Taylor said:   May 11, 2009 10:24 am PST
Hi Helen, nice to see you are all doing well as a team. Tell me is rowing the Indian Ocean as difficult as when you used to row my boat on the Norfolk Broads??? Keep those oars moving, all my love Grandpa XXXX

Neill & Hazel said:   May 10, 2009 11:30 am PST
Hi Helen, we are watching the dot at least 4 times a day to see your progress. So many people are interested in your challenge, update going in the paper next week. Keep concentrating and you will achieve your goals. You are determined and strong willed and with hard work will come success. Love as always Mum, Dad and Craig xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Louisa Budd said:   May 7, 2009 11:54 am PST
Hey Helen! Hope all is going well on the ocean for you and I'm thinking of you often! Take care hun and hopefully I'll see you at Sudbury Regatta! xxxxxxxx

Joe and Karen said:   May 7, 2009 6:51 am PST is spring time at the ranch...lots of green grass..sunshine....water in the reservoirs and calves running would love it....have everyone at work watching your progress.....keep rowing....

Jocelyn said:   May 6, 2009 2:14 pm PST
Helen, i am not sure if you got my last messages. I did something maybe very stupid, you will have to tell me if it was or not when you finish!!! Another fact for you, the slowest fish is a sea horse that drifts at 0.016km/hour!! Sea related and everything!!! Everyone at Sudbury is thinking of you and checking your progress daily!!! Tony H is checking your progress almost hourly and is very proud of you as we all are!!!! No pressure but if you want to rate a bit higher, something comfortable like 32â??s or even 36â??s so you finish sooner so we don't have to wait so long till we see you I am ok with that!!!!

NEILL & HAZEL said:   May 6, 2009 1:03 pm PST
Hi Helen it was great to hear your voice this morning ( even at 5.00am gmt) you sound in good spirits and we could almost smell the chicken in honey.We hear that Brian managed it in a bottle today "must have been a good aim or a very large bottle" Hope you and all the crew are well you are doing great keep up the good work YOU ALL HAVE THE DETERMINATION YOU WILL DO IT !!!! Helen you know we love you, keep the faith, oh! by the way VILLA beat Hull 1-0 to qualify for Europe XXXXX Mum + Dad

Mrs. James Taylor said:   May 6, 2009 9:22 am PST
God's Blessings on all of you.. I admire you so very much and I know My husband James, is watching from above. He was a parapalegic and was active in bowling, and anything he could do or try. Good luck to all of you

Paul Fitzgerald said:   May 2, 2009 6:26 am PST
Angela, Brian and Doug- You're off like a shot! I am sure you are using your marine radio operator's license, sextant, and first aid skills on a daily basis... good thing we learned all of that stuff. Steve and I are following your progress everyday. The beer and burgers in Mauritius will be worth it! Never give up.

Neill & Hazel said:   May 2, 2009 6:10 am PST
