BLOG just in from Alan Morgan of the Islanders in Black Oyster off Scarborough:
54 18,172N 00 17.631W Sorry been out of contact. We have very low solar energy, so no phones have been on charge for a while. Things have slightly turned around for us. We finally have a tail wind. So over the last 24 hours we’ve managed to stretch out legs and do some miles.
Everyone’s giving it the beans. As a result, literally passing out after each two-hour shift. Unable to even get changed and into dry sleeping bags. So it’s intense.
The plan is to head for Norfolk. It is weather dependent. Fingers crossed!
