It looks like next week will be testing, to say the least. Here is the latest from Ricardo.
”WEATHER SHIFT. BAD NEWS. THE FRONT HAS CHANGED ANGLE AND SO TOMORROW WHEN THE FRONT HITS IT WILL BRING SW WINDS FOR AGES AND AGES. NO RED CARPET FOR AT LEAST 7 DAYS.NEXT WEEK WILL BE SLOW UNLESS YOU CAN MAKE SOME GODO WEST AND EVEN NW WITH THE SW WINDS. LARGE LOW THURSDAY. AFTER THAT LOW IT LOOKS LIKE YOU FINALLY HAVE A GOOD STRETCH AHEAD AGAIN. BUT LOTS COULD CHANGE STILL AND I WILL UPDATE YOU ACCORDINGLY.”
In essence – we will be blown backwards. Rowing West in SW winds is well nigh impossible…
This wasn’t quite the update I had been hoping for to herald the weekend. Fingers crossed it changes again and ‘Please oh please Mr Weathermaker’, don’t push me back over the half way line!
We’re about to pull an all nighter on the oars and see if we can add a few more miles to the West. Sleep can happen another day…

My ID guide suggests my whaley encounter was not a Pilot whale – if my estimate of size was correct – but something else bigger than a Pilot. Not sure what sort of something else, however, apart from a very special something else.
Charlie Martell -We had various TV folks interested before but no one wanted to actually commission. So maybe they’ll change their minds when I’m back. We’ve got 2 years of buildup footage too so it tells the whole story. Any further Commando Joes planned?
Remora – We’re over half way already -it’s getting further away!
Jenna – Don’t worry, The Tweedles will fight off any over-enthusiastic suitor!
Geoff & Spike: Abersoch?!
