The Ups and Downs of Ocean Rowing

In the third of my reviews of Stage 2 of the Pacific row, I look at the dramas, frustrations and triumphs of life on the ocean wave. Some you win, some you lose, but at least it stops life being boring…. Dramas: Fortunately no major dramas this time around – no doubt to Texino’s disappointment.
