Later this month Alan Priddy, Clive Tully, Jan Falkowski and Egburt Walters will attempt to make the crossing from St John's, Newfoundland to Cape Wrath in Scotland in less than 100 hours.
The team hopes to leave St John's, weather permitting, on July 27th and they aim to be back in Portsmouth on August 9th. En route they'll stop in Greenland and Iceland before reaching the end point for the record at Cape Wrath in Northern Scotland. After that, they'll make their way back to Portsmouth via Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man.
Clive Tully, crew member and onboard journalist, will be posting regular updates here as the voyage progresses. A camera crew is following them on both sides of the Atlantic, so there should also be a chance to re-live the experience on TV in the autumn when their documentary is scheduled for screening.

Best wishes to all the crew from RIBnet. I've got my fingers crossed for some decent weather!
