The weather forecast is holding. At this stage there is still every reason to believe we will get away from the harbour at 05:30 on Wednesday 20th August, with an anticipated swim start of around 06:15 (it takes around 45 minutes to arrive at our coastguard-designated beach).
Today will be spent relaxing, and going through a final check of equipment, feeding drills and communication plans.
The clock is ticking.
