Rowing round things (3)

Today this lot start an epic 100-day row round Great Britain in an ancient Australian surfboat, wearing nought but their Speedos.
Though I suspect if the weather doesn't perk up considerably they will be putting their fleeces back on immediately they are out of camera shot. They will be rowing between 20 and 30 miles a day, staying overnight at suitable landing places shown in the map here: Apparently they still need places to sleep at some of the destinations so if you can help, do drop them a line. The site has all the details of this great expedition.
The hull was refurbished by local craftsmen and adapted for sculling by Neaves Rowing Services, who designed and fitted outriggers and sliding seats. 
This is the crew from Bournemouth Surf Club:
