Feel free to update thread. Made it safely in 2.5 hours to Bryher and tent pitched. Gearbox still intact! Fraggle Rock pub awaits :-)

2.5hrs is about right. It could've been lumpy when he broke Lands End, we've had a fairly stiff N Westerly blow for most of the day. Plenty of sunshine, :-) Tell him to buy Chris the Landlord a pint of Doom, it'll oil the wheels nicely. ;-)

Great timing by David on the weather! Wish I'd booked this week off instead having to go inland for work.

I bet he's having an amazing time!

Fair play to him though, he went off and did it instead of sitting on his arse talking about it

(No offence to the people sitting on their arse talking about it )
