Submariners face toughest of tests
Next month will see four serving Royal Navy submariners face the remarkable mental and physical challenge of rowing unsupported in a race across the Atlantic Ocean. The team, HMS Oardacious, will be the first ever official Royal Navy team to take part in the world’s toughest rowing race, the 3,000-mile Atlantic challenge. They will depart from La Gomera in the Canary Islands and are aiming to reach Nelson’s Dockyard in Antigua just over a month later. The crew will face the challenge of battling 30 foot waves, sleep deprivation, salt sores, torrential rain and every submariner’s nightmare – blistering sunshine.

From Navy Books Friday Briefing - love the last sentance..............................................:)

Sound's like a normal patrol, followed by a jolly, bit of graft followed by sunshine.:);)
