A dismal day in St Peter Port, will the fleet make it home tomorrow?


What a difference a day makes. Heavy rain set in for the day and woke crews in the early hours. Outside it was grey, grim and getting windier by the minute.

Despite the rain the crews of Gîte and Free Spirit ventured off to the Aquarium. David and Neil of AquaVit had lunch in Pier 17. For other crews the lure of the high street sales was all too much and they hit the shops in search of a bargain.

The sun started breaking through this afternoon, but the wind is not showing any mercy.

Tonight there was a group meal at the Guernsey Yacht Club. Neale addressed the participants with a weather update and plans for a possible passage home tomorrow. Currently the forecast is not looking brilliant for tomorrow but its radios on for 8am and Neale will look at the latest forecasts again in the morning, and if need be Time Flies will go out for a final assessment.
