If you haven’t been following Endurance Limits USA on social media, this might be the first you hear that Erin and Ryan were forced to suspend their efforts to row the Pacific after Erin suffered a broken wrist when their boat capsized the morning of June 11. After a helicopter rescue, the Endurance Limits USA team is back on dry land and Erin has been able to get the medical attention she needed in Santa Barbra. She is well on her way to a full recovery.
She and Ryan are grateful for the Great Pacific Race staff and the rescue team that kept them safe! They are also very appreciative of Robin Reese and her brother and sister-in-law, Lad and Laura, for providing housing during their unexpected time in Santa Barbara.
Before Erin and Ryan can make their way back to Minnesota, though, they must first retrieve their vessel Mugatu. While retrieval logistics are figured out, Erin and Ryan will continue to monitor the race and cheer on the remaining teams, who are now past or approaching the half-way point!
Once back in Minnesota, Erin and Ryan will share a thorough race update via blog, email and social media, so stay tuned! But in the meantime, though their rowing has wrapped, their mission continues – to raise money for children’s hospitals across the country. Please help them accomplish their goal of raising $150,000: http://endurancelimitsusa.com/donate/
