Right choice guys as the darkness hits you and the sea and weather is against you

Have a shower, hot meal and well deserved beverage

Love following your trip!

I know the stretch from Kingsdown to Pegwell quite well. Dover was the right call given that you all must be tiring after your day.

I don't see how they can be in Brundall tomorrow, plan B will have to be enacted

If they do, they do..

If not, its not a big issue as its all about the safety of the crew 

No doubt the guys have plans A,B and C available if required

As could be seen by todays trip to Dover

Early start, "a few miles under the belt" before breakfast, what a wonderful way to start a day.

I agree 100%. Reaching Brundall tomorrow would mean a very early start and then Traversing the Yare in darkness

And don't forget good child's closes at 5 pm , so much more sensible to moor there till the morning then up the yare on Tuesday morning , its along leg from Dover and very likely miss the incoming tide up the yare , safety is more important than plan A for sure .
