Great achievement.

They must be very comfortable with each other. I can't imagine many 20 year old girls that would be comfortable peeing and whatever else in a bucket in front of their dad.

Of course you have to be in great shape, but itís actually not as hard as you might think. If you look at the drift models itís rare that the ocean rowers get to the destination any faster then flotsam.
