They circled by sharks were smashed by waves in the dark and spent most of the past nine months sleeping two hours.
Their 29-foot boat, named Doris, included a cabin the magnitude of a two-man tent where the girls washed, cleaned and slept.”It Is really hot and really sweaty, particularly in large waves where we must keep the hatches shut,” Emma Mitchell said.”It Is kind of like being in a two-man tent-sized sauna.”Mitchell, Cohen and team leader Laura Penhaul each rowed the whole excursion while Isabel Burnham, Lizanne Van Vuuren and Meg Dyos rowed a leg each. The girls was anticipated on Sunday to dock but were delayed by weather.
Dyos said she was looking forward to eating more substantial meals. “Essentially everything is made out of hot water: blend it to get a little, five minutes after it is all prepared,” she said.”I believe we are quite looking forward to getting a chew.”The girls began their trip expecting to raise more than $500,000 for charity and had managed around $77,500 by the time of their coming in Cairns.Their profits will go to Breast Cancer Care and veterans’ charity Walking With The Wounded, which helps returned service staff.
