  • Nepal Earthquake - All of us at Explore are deeply saddened by the news of the earthquake in Nepal and our thoughts are with those affected by this terrible tragedy.

    Despite difficulties with communication we have been in contact with all our groups and tour leaders who are all safe. Our teams worked over the weekend to provide our customers with alternative accommodation and onward travel. Our remaining customers will be flying home from Nepal shortly. We will shortly be in touch with customers due to travel to Nepal within the next two months.

    Explore is supporting the British Red Cross Nepal Earthquake Appeal and ask customers wishing to assist financially with the relief to donate directly to the Red Cross.

Atlantic Rowing Race: Blog 49

Editor's note. This is possibly the last on-board blog from the girls. They are that close to the end. Mel mentions that they are going to be going for it in the next few days, chasing down the boys ahead and keeping in front of the boys they’ve overtaken. There will be a big update once they hit land of course!

Mel – Blog w/c 15th March Hurrah – we’re back in 13th place – it’s great to see the hard work we’ve put in over the last few days has paid off. We upped the hours on the blades from 12 (which was what we’d normally be doing) to 16 – and then upped it again to 18 at the weekend, which is what we feel is the absolute maximum. It’s damn hard work but we managed to “hoik” ourselves back from 17th to 13th it was all worth it. The extra hours on the blades do have a huge impact on us as we get very little sleep now (not that we got very much before) and we still need to eat and do our daily chores; making water, navigation etc., so with any spare time, chores have to come first and sleep second. But we only have a few more days to go, so we’re hoping we can do without sleep. Existence has become very functional – just row, eat sleep, row eat, sleep. It could easily become a chore, but we try not to let that happen. On Friday it was absolutely sweltering hot and despite the fact that we were chasing down boys, we just jumped in the sea and went swimming. It had got so hot that we didn’t know what to do with ourselves and it’s actually quite torturous to sit rowing with the sea so close so we thought, “you know what, we’re going to take 10 minutes out and go for a swim”. On Saturday night we drank our last alcohol on board. We had white wine sachets. We very much enjoyed those, watching the sun go down, so although it’s hard work on Explore it can be fun too. As much as we want to be in Antigua, we’re very aware that we only have a few days left on Explore and we want to savour them. Despite the hardships, we really are loving this and we’ll miss it when it’s all over.
