Stage 2 is complete. We've arrived at Reading for a very well earned lunch break. Well done team! Charlotte's shift in the coxing seat has come to an end after an impressive 4 hours!
A Teddy Hall tradition for over 150 years, the Captain's Logbook is a record of day to day life at one of the most dynamic Boat Clubs on the Isis.
The music is now on after we got the cox box working again, crew morale is high. Weather is gorgeous. Harry has been complaining that his blisters are hurting him, although to everyone's benefit his rowing has improved somewhat with the increase in pain!
And we're back online! Here's a couple of photos from of stage 2 of our journey between Wallingford and London.
We're encountering some technical difficulties feeding content to the logbook whilst on the water - technology has come on a lot but I think it will be a while yet before boats become equipped with wifi connectivity! Updates to follow shortly. Joe
Steady progress by the team as we move towards midday. Some crew changes at Wallingford. Joe and Stephanie replaced by Tom and Megan. Joe's efforts for the team are over after being summoned to return to his workplace by his employer. No matter, we pick up a new team member Sam when we stop for our second break in Reading. Keep following the logbook for updates when they arrive!
'Beautiful day, hopefully the cox box will be functional again soon so we can fire up some tunes over the speaker system!'
Blisters appearing now but spirits are high. Charlotte has just been on the phone to BBC Oxford in the morning phone in. Fantastic weather. The 'SEHxy and I row it' beaters are out!
Arrived at Days Lock. Sun is out! 6/7km stretch to follow until next lock. Internet access proving difficult in these remote parts of Oxfordshire. All crew in good health. Let's go Hall!
Joe to stroke, Graham to 2 seat. And we're off!
