American Oarsmen: Into Week Four

At the end of the third week of the 2016-17 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, the American Oarsmen are holding steady in fifth place overall, trailing Latitude 35 (US), Row for James (UK), Soulo Gav (Eire), and Facing It (South Africa). As of Tuesday morning (Texas time), the Oarsmen have about a 12 nautical mile lead over Fresh Dental Challenge (UK). You can follow the race here, and catch up on tweets from the Oarsmen here.

My favorite, from New Year’s Day:

mike has an “advanced” late night steering technique where he charges the waves, demanding they yield. we have yet to see good results.
