2 skins in a boat- Ardglass to Blackpool row for H4H

#1
Hello all,

I've just heard that two old mates from my regiment are at this very moment half way across the Irish sea in a leaky old tub trying to raise money for Help for Heroes.

Unfortunately they are even further from their cash target than they are from their destination so I thought that I would give my fellow arrsers a shout on their behalf.

If anyone would like to donate, they can be found at-

Sorry if the link isn't live as I'm a bit crap... :oops:

Latest is they are 5 miles South of the Isle of Man, they have been fighting the tide for the last 5 hours. 41 miles complete 55 to go. Now back on target.
Sore hands and backsides.

I've heard that can happen when men have been at sea for a long time!... :wink:

STAB23 or whatever her name is will be along in a minute to tell us all how these guys are just show-offs and unless they are trying to swim the Atlantic with their hands tied it is no achievement whatsoever.

To understand what I mean see this thread http://www.arrse.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic/t=148096.html

Anyhooo, I will be throwing things at these blokes when they hit Blackpool and 20 squiddlies on it's way, good effort

I almost didn't donate as the boat doesn't appear to be full of cold beans and large herring gulls aren't attempting to peck their eyes out (the crew not the beans). But nevertheless it's a great effort for a good cause and so I donated anyway.

If its any consolation it'll be full of stale piss and empty lager cans by the time they reach Blackpool...Cheers Mistersoft!

Blackpool is full of stale piss and empty lager cans, I should know, I have to live there, it fits in nicely with the piles of dog turds and pools of puke. Somebody please buy my house!

Just had a phone call from the RNLI (Don't panic). Both the lads are in good spirits averaging 1.2 knots (which is quick). They are about to hit 2 six hour tides one in and one out. Getting concerned they might be in the bar before me.
