HE'S DONE IT!!

Commencing on 8 Aug 06 MAA Dave Harris today (11 Aug 06) equalled then broke the World Record continuous endurance indoor row at 1000 local (0900 UK), rowing a staggering 73 hours. Although he would liked to have continued for longer he took the advice of his team and stopped, breaking the record by 1 hour and after covering a staggering distance of 626,125 metres.



He already has the Guinness World Records for the greatest distance in 24 hours (307,683 metres, set in Nov 01, which remains unbroken) and also the quickest 100,000 metres (completed in Jan 05 in 6 hours 55 minutes, beating the previous record by 17 minutes). The world rankings can be viewed at:

He is now recovering in the Sickbay under the constant supervision of the Medical Team, but if you would like to pass on any messages you can contact him on board as necessary:

We must not forget that this unique and outstanding achievement not only broke a World Record but also raised an enormous amount of money for the Ship's Charity (The Children's Ward, Bishop Auckland Hospital, Durham).

Thanks for your support. For your information the Joss is now off his bed and currently clearing his inbox of BZ emails from throughout the Fleet! He can't sit down for long as he doesn't have much skin on his derriere... anyway apart from some tender parts and overdosing on Pro Plus and Paracetemol, he'll be back on his feet in no time.

By the way, he has already planned to compete in a half-marathon next month!

Well I take your veiled remarks with a pinch of sea dust... I think everyone is very well behaved as they appreciate the magnitude of what he has achieved.

As the Deputy Sheriff on board you'll be glad to know that there were no reported incidents during his record-breaking event, so it pays to 'speak softly but carry a big stick'!!
 
Hey hey! Just seen this post.

So the MAA did it - well done Mr Harris. Hope the few shillings donated by us from the R IRISH helped in a tiny wee way.

Glad you're all home safe and sound - I'm still getting a slagging from the R IRISH landlubbers about the modern day 'press ganging' of us and taking us to Beirut!! Little do they know we wouldn't have missed it for the world.

Cheers shipmates
