hello Peter, they only have a short distance to travel so we have agreed that at 2 PM not earlier. We will have the Poole SeaSafari rib from 1.30 so we can go out and meet them. I will be seeing them on Friday at Littlehampton and will re-confirm the time and agree a VHF channel

Yes lets move on.

I will donate 50.00 to the charity if no one refers to the issue on here for at least 48 hours from now.
Many thanks on behalf of the Team . you are a true Gent and a man of his word. Please make sure you make yourself known so I can introduce you to the Team. I am sure they will want to thank you in person and shake your hand.


On behalf of the Team many thanks to the members for sitting quiet -

I was working in the north east today, and thought about coming back via Whitby to see if I could see them - glad I didn't as it would of been a long day, bit not as long as the guys on the boat. 225 is a bit of a long slog!

Leg 7 18 June 2014

Leg 7 as we now see was the longest so far in total 225 Nm. At 8.30 PM Never Enough escorted by an RNLI all-weather lifeboat arrived to Whitby. This escort was clearly visible on the AIS Marine Tracking.

three more legs to go and the last leg on Saturday is only 46 Nm
