They set out from Japan on May 17, 2013. They had rowed nearly 5,500 miles when their boat was hit by a fishing ship on September 172013. Luckily they both escaped unharmed, but their boat was badly damaged and they had to stop their journey.

In a radio interview, Dom expressed his disappointment and explained how the accident took place.

“A fishing ship came towards us with nobody on the bridge (船桥) and ran us down. It all happened so quickly. I managed to jump into the water. Tim felt it would be safer to stay on board the boat. He was trapped (陷入) inside as the boat was driven under the water. Finally some people appeared on the ship and saw me in the water. I shouted at them to stop the ship and to get Tim out. When the ship stopped, I finally saw Tim, and I was very, very relieved (如释重负) that we were still alive. We were very disappointed that we couldn’t reach San Francisco. But we are alive. That above everything is the most important.”

54 Waters Road

Hiroyuki Mahita                                Nesaden

Manager                                        London

Hotel Sayuri                                    N06 4RL




16 September 2012

Dear Mr. Mahita,

I was given your name and the address of your hotel by two friends of ours who stayed at the Sayuri last June. They were Mr. James Collins and Mr. Arthur Drake. You would perhaps remember James Collins, as he speaks fluent Japanese.

Both Mr. Collins and Mr. Drake spoke very highly of your hotel and all the help they received from your staff when they visited Kyoto.

Following their recommendations, I would like to make a reservation at your hotel for myself and my friend, Mr. Peter Sullivan. We would like two single rooms as close to each other as possible, next-door would be ideal for us. We would like to be in Japan for New Year’s Day and to be there for Adult’s Day, which we have been told is on the second Monday in January. So we would like our reservations to be from 31 December 2012 to 20 January 2013. I have also been told that you can arrange an English-speaking guide, certainly for the Machiya, the town houses of Kyoto, but also for other aspects of life in Kyoto. Can you also advise me on car hire in Japan, please?

I look forward to hearing from you with confirmation of the booking and advice on prices and payment – how much do you want in advance as a deposit (押金)?

I should perhaps mention that unlike our friend Mr. Collins, neither myself nor Mr. Sullivan speaks a single word of Japanese (unfortunately!). But I am told that you speak excellent English.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours Sincerely

Ted Latham
