We start with the sunrise and we will be back with it after 24 hours on the boat. It’s an unique experience where you will see a beautiful show of lights. You will experience the temperature difference, feel the waves and the wind. The sunset on the sea will make you forget for a couple of minutes about the physical effort you will need to get there.
Opting for a session that includes night rowing is a fabulous experience. Night shifts are described by ocean rowers as the most painful, as they normally happen while we’re used to sleep, sometimes in pitch dark, which makes rowing difficult even in calm seas. Together with little or no landmarks to indicate progress, you have to rely on the equipment on board and gut feeling to take the boat to the next waypoint in an effective manner.
As you will have at least 2 shifts of 2 hours each rowing after sunset, the exposure to the difference in temperature from day to night may accelerate the feelings of fatigue, disorientation, exhaustion. It will aslo give you time to think, to analyse your emotions and feelings, to put your objectives in perspective.
There’ll be time for swimming and for admiring the sunset into the sea – provided you put the energy into the oars to take the boat further enough.
Interaction with the other members of the crew is important, so don’t hesitate to provide feedback and ask for it;all these while you keep an eye on the others on deck, to make sure they’re safe – and they’ll do the same.
