Jo chatted with Lloyd by phone as he and David prepared their two-man vessel, Atlantic Calling, with some test rows in the waters around their departure point, Agadir, Morocco. Despite Moroccan red tape, a bout of food poisoning, and the daunting physical and mental task in front of them, Lloyd sounds ready to “take his moon-shot."
