Not sure of the details yet, but I am definitely coming over on the Saturday with Peter Giovanoli and probably Ralph Carson. We will probably come over by ferry with the rib(s) on a trailer. I'll give you an update later in the week...

Between Malta and Port Said is a long way from me indeed. My thoughts will be near you as well as my voice if you are equiped with a HF tranceiver. Just tell me the frequency and I 'll be there. I can't recommend neither the VHF band nor the marine VHF because of the short range of coverage. With the HF me and some good friends of mine, can escort you all the way from Cardiff to Indian Ocean (say the least), via our microphones.

The girl came out of the water today...due to get herself all done up for the big trip. She is in the good hands of Alan P. - who is slaving away and tending to her every needs as I write this.

How many days...?

I am...wait till I start counting the hours and minutes.

Come on. Get your bags packed and head to Cardiff.

She is all alone tonight, in her new home for the next few weeks ; Alan P. has totally stripped her! and then left her alone to drive back home!

He even let the TV camera take footage of her while in her bare state!

How many more days? One less than yesterday.

Back to the top...approaching the 1500 view mark, she is a popular girl.

Page TWO in the local paper last night - it is an afternoon edition, nothing to do with darkness!

Point of Departure

I'm sure this must have bee mentioned before, but I cant see it so I thought would ask the quetion, where exactly is Spirit departing from? (I know it's Cardiff - but not the exact Marina/Quay/Dock or whatever.

The current plan is for Spirit to be on show in Roath Basin on Saturday, and then move to Mermaid Quay early on Sunday morning.

The actual departure point will be the Cardiff Bay Barrage as the boat locks out into the Bristol Channel.

Add my two pennies worth

Departure Oval Basin rather than Mermaid Quay. They are next to each other and we will set up some pontoons by the Oval Basin for the SOC and supporters boats / ribs.

I think I am right in saying that the clock will begin when SOC exits the Barrage locks.

Mermaid Quay/Oval Basin

Well, if you're going to be picky, shouldn't that be the Roald Dahl Basin?

You are correct - as always - not sure if it has been renamed yet....mut it will always be the Oval Basin to me - can't pronounce that chappy's name very well.
