Finn and Black Adder are in Cuxhaven - we've taken a look at the weather coming up and have decided to take some days out of boating to wait for what we hope will be a good weather window and do the last days from Cuxhaven to Southampton next Wednesday to Friday - XC seems to indicate a few days of calmer conditions for then.

I'll try and get some more details of the daily cruises and tracks that we've done now I've got some time and better internet!

Thanks Andre for updating the thread - some of the legs have ended up with a bit of extra exercise even after doing 100 mile + days.

Was in Amsterdam yesterday. Now in Ijmuiden, hoping to do about 100 miles down to Dunkerque tomorrow (Friday ) and back to the UK on Saturday. (Plan A).

Hi Trevor

Well done.

How about this as Plan B

Delay your departure from Dunkerque and join us as we go RIOW for Macmillans

Actually, we've stopped for the night in Eastbourne and hope to go straight to the Round iow cruise tomorrow.
It was a choppy day today. 117 miles but much of it was in short steep chop. Especially round Dungeness.

1900 miles so far. It'll be 2000 + if we go round the iow as well on the last leg.
