Don't envy them one bit. Fancy rowing such a heavy vessel in that Irish Sea, in the dark, for however many hours. It seems madness to me, particularly if it's rough, (hopefully it's not)
That, in itself is a remarkable fete and I hope everyone appreciates it.

Just checked she's doing 3.4 knots and is about 5 miles away from the Crosby channel, so it's looks as if it's on time.

She is basically heading towards Hoylake and is level with Crosby, but will use the Crosby channel into Liverpool port, but with a 1,8m drought, she could go where she wants.

Great photo from above Fort Perch rock! I was on the beach, listening to the welcoming Viking horns, but had to leave so couldn't follow her progress upriver. Hope to visit when she's in West Float, though, once the new mast is fitted. Apparently she will be doing rowing demos there, so that should be a sight to see.
