Swim confirmed for tomorrow. 

We meet the pilot in the harbour at 07h00 UK time tomorrow. Low tide is at the same time, so it looks like a long sweep north with the flood tide, before turning south with the ebb tide soon after 13h00. My efficient crew has already packed their food & my various fuels, done dry runs of feeding routines, compiled lists etc etc and now have their feet up.  

Many thanks to all of you who have sent text messages, emails to my various email addresses & also made comments on this site.

Time for pasta again & to get some sleep.


  1. Hope the weather gods smile on you this time big brother, know it will go swimmingly if they are. Thinking of you and proud as always. Lots of love.
