You may recall us telling you about Steve and Mick's epic endeavour taking on the challenge of a lifetime rowing unaided from Monterey, California to Honolulu, Hawaii in the Great Pacific Race. 20six are very proud to be sponsoring their boat, Bojangles, and have received an update that we would like to share with you.
Can You Help?
They were due to have set sail already but inclement weather conditions have meant the race has been delayed - yes, it's not just us Brits that suffer from changeable weather!
Whilst they have used their time to their full advantage, checking and rechecking that Bojangles really is ship shape, it has caused a problem for them financially. We know a lot of you have already helped out with the funding, but if you have only just heard about this, or can spare a few more pennies, Steve and Mick would be so grateful for your assistance.
Mick and Steve are trying to raise as much money as they can for two charities that are close to their, and to 20six's, hearts - both the Blind Veterans UK, who have supported Steve since he lost his sight, and The Royal Marines Charity.
They have been working really hard to get this far, and the journey has only just begun. They are due to set sail tonight, at 2am UK time, and as always, we will keep you posted of how things are going for them.
If you can help we'd be so appreciative, and in case you needed to see more evidence of how hard these guys have worked so far, check out their video below of Bojangles final safety testing.
