Thanks Alex
that would be tough going the other way round one would be heading into the Atlantic.
Has it been done that way?

The Team will be arriving to Southampton Dry Stack about midday. The sponsors logos will be put on the rib and the guys will head for Poole.

Tomorrow morning they leave from Poole to RNLI Penlee near Penzance, Cornwall. Distance 150 Nautical Mileson their first leg Round Britain.

I have upgraded the AIS tracking page so the whole route should be displayed when you click on:

NEVER ENOUGH - Pleasure Craft: current position and details | MMSI 235095413, Callsign 2FYY5 | Registered in United Kingdom - AIS Marine Traffic

and click on the orange tab: Received last position

see Facebook for latest updates as well
