Excitement on the Queen Mary 2

I hope this will correct an earlier, messier post . On the 9/22 crossing from NY to Southampton the QM2 diverted to drop supplies to a woman attempting to set a record
by ROWING solo across the Atlantic from Halifax to France. Everyone was out on decks and
balconies to watch the operation. When she snagged the supplies a huge cheer went up.
Then the Captain led everyone in a Hip Hip Hurray.... we blew 3 blasts on our mighty whistle
and sailed on our way. As far as I know she's still out there. I think of her every nite when I snuggle down in bed.
(She's scheduled to reach her goal in November !)
