Pacific Rowers Will See Trouble X's 2

Iselle and Julio are bearing down on the rowers as they approach the Hawaiian island chain.  They are in day 57 from Monterey and some teams are speeding up to miss the fury while others are slowing down and deploying sea anchors.  It's going to be tough going as 25-30 knot winds hit the fleet as well as very large swells.  This pair of storms in this part of the Pacific are very rare.  With the water warming in many areas due to El Nino, the flood gates have opened.  The next few days will be intense for all involved.  Read the latest reports here.
