Same here in Poole wind eased ( but still 'breezy and now raining) - windsurfers were screaming about in Poole harbour - nearly as quick a certain Technohull RIB that was out

It don't look nice; from what I can see on various web sites we are going to get wet both ways, and I am not talking about spray
OK, where did I put that Gecko

I may do the same. I put my name down early for this one but couldn't follow through for various reasons. Have great trip all.

Does anyone know if David and co made the crossing today? There isn't much that will stop Avocet when he is on a mission but it did look a bit grim earlier.

Just heard from Avocet! Quote "We've just arrived in St Vaast after five hours in a spin dryer on wash cycle. It's probably the most stupid thing I've ever done! Hot shower beckons! "

As I said, there isn't much that will stop Avocet when he is on a mission I'm surprised he went for the shower first, it's usually beer!

Glad they made it OK. I hope the rest of you have a better crossing tomorrow.
