The fleet awoke to a blustery morning. The rib went out to assess the conditions and, not surprising, the outcome was a no go.

During the afternoon the MBM team took time out and visited La Cite de la Mer. The 40-year-old submarine was incredible and the aquarium was very impressive.

At 1600hrs Corona Mia was launched after days being on the hard standing. The fault had been a cracked exhaust muffler. Both mufflers have now been replaced with straight through pipes.

The plan tomorrow is to look at the conditions again first thing, with the hope to move to Guernsey.
