15:00 17/07/10 We’re in the North Sea!! No comments or jokes please to our families about ‘The Deadly North Sea’ till we’re back on dry ground! The marina control tower suddenly released us between 2 Clippers coming in and allowed us to take advantage of high tide. We had left port by 11:30 and been averaging speeds of 6 knots. It’s allowed us to row past Grimsby and out of the estuary! The last leg really feels started as driving winds have blown waves over the boat giving a wet start to the shift. The plan is to row to Bridlington….some 60 miles or, if we’ve really got a steam on, we’ll pass Bridlington and continue to the next stop of Scarborough. Either way we’ll not be stopping till tomorrow afternoon. I doubt I’ll get signal for another blog till then….but hopefully the new GPS tracker is working and you can monitor our position!
