    Before any and all of these hair brained misadventures are allowed to take place there should have to be a million dollar bond posted which would cover the costs of the rescues and-or lawsuits.

    No wonder poor old Bill Shakespear wrote "Lord, what fools these mortals be".The couple explain that "The conditions (on the Grand Banks) are unfamiliar there because we’re not used to rowing in that kind of shallower waters on the edge of the Continental Shelf. That and the cold are the two big unknown quantities for us on this.”These are truly the words one would expect to hear from a poor soul with the IQ of a bag of hammers.

    Hmmmmm - no support vessel, not familiar with conditions and cold, a boat designed for Pacific......yeah - this all sounds like a great idea! What could go wrong??

    Try asking the Winsor family from Great Britan to help you out. They have lots of money, a real nice boat to accompany their fellow countrymen/women maybe all the way across and many family members with lots of time on their hands who love to be in the limelite. AND, if you are lucky enough to make it across the Atlantic Ocean without it costing the taxpayers of this country a bundle of money to rescue you, like what has happened too many times before, the queen herself, I am sure, will be there to welcome you at London Bridge. Maybe you should consider taking Charlie Winsor with you to make it an interesting trip. It would give him something to do for a change.

    I assume they're going to pay for any costs associated to their rescue and not the taxpayers....

    A stunt like this requires planning and they have not even planned for an escort vessel? I'm sorry, but the kindness of Newfoundlanders is being mocked by people such as these.
