Bullimore has done approx 2000 nms in 8 days, roughly 250 miles a day. He has 3500 nms to Cape Horn. His schedule is 15 days Hobart-Cape Horn, approx 350 nms per day. He now needs to average nearly 500nms a day to keep the record in sight. Might be a bit of a problem for him. I can only dream of 250 mile days so he is still achieving big time, but it does seem doubtful that the record is likely to fall.
