The boat has a water tight cabin at each end, and Mick and Steve will be rowing from the cockpit in the middle of the boat.
All boats in the Great Pacific Race are designed to self-right if they capsize and each boat has undergone a capsize test to ensure that this design feature is operational. The boat used by Steve and Mick has been very well tested – it’s the boat used by Mick and his team mate Chris Martin to row 7,000 miles between Choshi in Japan to San Francisco, a journey that took 189 days 10 hours and 55 minutes.
