Won't happen until tomorrow.

Jessica has been a busy young lady woman now that she has turned 18. She's in France for the mini-Fastnet. Details here.

It's been over a year since Abby was rescued.

"Earlier in the day I had sent a blog home to my mom to post. It started off with a bad attempt at humor, saying "its been a crazy few days out here, the long and the short of it is, one long wave and one short, meaning a two inch stub of a mast." It wasn't funny, but at the time my choices were pretty limited, cry, or cry, or make a lame joke and pretend its funny. I went with the third option."

Laura is moored at Moorea.

And Jeanne must be enjoying Cape Town - she hasn't posted lately.

Jessica completed the Mini Fastnet (in a boat named "Skippy"). She started Round The Island race, but crashed. Or is that collided in boat racing?

Laura is back to crossing the Pacific, and is reading "The Girl Who Played with Fire" of the 'Millennium' series. Excellent books(s).

Jeanne flew off to London, she's back now & climbed Table Mountain

Roz has been rowing, making very good progress, but because of the Horn of Africa pirate situation is not showing her position. here is the most recent post.

Jessica is racing around the Whitsunday Islands.

Jeanne posted more pictures from Table Mountain. That animal looks like a pika. I wonder if they have marmots in SA.

Laura is en route again, about 400 land miles to Fiji.
She posted some pictures. So it really is happening.

Roz is somewhat becalmed, but never stops thinking.

Even though this thread has fallen off the page, it still gets some hits.

So let's update our adventurers:

Jessica is well into training for the Sydney-Hobart race. Last year she was too young to enter, this year she has her own boat & crew. Story here.

Abby, et al are winning film nominations & awards - here.

Laura has visited Durban in South Africa - & just missed running down a whale.

Jeanne is still in Capetown - with a joke:

My latest on the slow pace of work.....

Q: "Why is Cape Town called the 'Mother City'?

A: "Because it takes nine months to get anything done!"

More here.

And, finally, Roz is in Colorado, having rowed across the Indian Ocean. Story here.

Rod, here are more (belated) updates.

Jessica is doing well with her teenage crew on the Ella Bache in the Sydney-Hobart race.

Laura is entertaining flying fish in her cabin in the middle of the night.

Roz and Jeanne met each other at a shindy thrown by the Queen.

"An awesome evening in Buckingham Palace .....! What a privilege! Amid the splendour of the State rooms with their magnificent paintings and with several relevant displays of original letters, photos and other objects from explorations and adventures over the last two centuries, we were all presented to the Queen and Prince Philip who were hosting a Reception to mark the centenary of Capt Scott's final expedition to the S. Pole. The Reception was intended to recognise the accomplishments of those involved in exploration and adventure in all its forms. "

Well, it's been a while, so let's catch up with our intrepid young ladies:

Jessica & her crew won the Three Peaks Race in Tasmania.

Jessica is now in the third week of something called Dancing With The Stars.

"I've seen a lot of incredible things in my career, but never have I seen such a transformation llke that. You have gone from a duckling to a swan, it was beautiful," said Richey.

Picture - or it didn't happen:



Laura is waiting to pass through the Panama Canal.

Jeanne has left Hobart and is nearing New Zealand.

Roz is attending conferences. Check out the Lytro light field camera. Just simply amazing. She will be rowing the Atlantic to get to the Olympics!

Jessica has survived two more rounds of that dance thing.

Laura should be at the Galapagos Islands today. She has a kitty named "Kiwi" on board. And some blokes.

Roz has regretfully postponed the XAtlantic row to the Olympics due to abnormal icebergs.

"I weighed up the pros and cons of carrying on with the row. There were 7 points on each side. But when one of the "con" points is "risk of death significantly higher than anticipated", you really have to give that one a higher weighting. "

And Jeanne is on her way to Tahiti.
