Happy news from Sarah and Happy Socks.
I’m so pleased and relieved to tell you that Sarah is putting her feet up in her cabin. She came within half a mile of land but the prevailing winds, swell and current were pushing her onto the rocks that circle the coves. Her support on the boat decided it was time for a tow, her safety being the main consideration as always.
If you follow the tracker it’s clear to see when the support boat met her and there were hugs all round as Sarah made human contact for the first time in 150 days. A bottle of Pol Roger champagne toasted the reunion. Now she will be towed in Happy Socks through the island passage to the harbour, a trip expected to last some 3-4 hours.
Sarah will return to this point in spring 2014 to continue her London 2 London (via the world) expedition by kayak.
Happy smiling faces from all at L2L.
