As at 09.00 UK time this morning, Mag. A. and Jellignite have exited the Chanel de Fort and are directly en-route to Falmouth. With another 90 miles to run I estimate they should reach there between 13.00 and 14.00 hours.
Will post again when I get their next call.
If everything goes OK today, they plan to run in tandem up to Dartmouth Friday morning.
Your intrepid reporter hopes to be on the spot there to record the momentous event on camera.

They are back!

Docking up just after 14.00 today all three of them are now enjoying a cold beer in Mikes house.

I will go over to Dartmouth tomorrow morning and take some snaps to post here.

No Time for a 1,000 words...

... a few pics will have to do for now before my shower and few homecoming jars...

The stuffing was a bit of a surprise. Sea was lovely, and so was the morning. I just failed to see the hole that opened up as we drove down hard into it. After we had cleared enough of the water to prevent too much damage to the electrics and to keep the engine running I donned the trusty Guy Cotten survival suit and was over the side to lash down the bow. Di grabbed the camera. I look pretty miserable but, actually, it was all quite fun...

We headed for Lorient - the nearest major port down wind and, because the travel lift operator there doesn't work Mondays, waited to lift out next day...

Soon we could see that the tube had detached 4 metres back from the bow. It's true, when it folded back on itself it almost hit the windscreen!

With Mark's help, while the locals dozed in the afternoon sun, we worked in the manner of mad dogs and Englishman and by drinks time we were finishing off the glueing...
