In the middle of last century, somebody setting out to row an ocean would have had no means of communicating with people ashore. We are almost reaching that situation with Roz at present, as her technology is giving her serious problems. She cannot send or receive emails, nor can she send her blog. We are working to find ways around the problems. Meanwhile I will do what I can to keep you informed of the situation. Be assured that Roz herself is just fine.
The Solara gadget sending her position via satellite has also stopped working, but we are hoping to get her position relayed twice a day so that we can follow where she is – especially important if you are taking guesses on Go Roz Go about her date and time of arrival – wherever that may be.
To those who follow her on Twitter, again we hope that something like normal service can be cobbled together before too long. Please be patient.
Sadly there will no photographs by Roz, she cannot find any way of sending them through.
