rowing the Indian Ocean

A co-worker of my brother-in-law - Glenn Edwards is currently rowing across the Indian Ocean. Glenn and John Williams are attempting to be the first duo to row across the Indian Ocean [6400 km]. The trip will take about 3 months.

They have challenged themselves to raise $64,000 for The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada, "so children living with life threatening illnesses can live their dreams too."

Here are some sites of interest:

The Ocean Rowing Society has a list of row currently underway. You can find Edwards & Williams about 1/2 way down the page. As I write this, they have been in the water almost 5 days.
