He made it to the finish line (Eastbourne Pier) after about 11 hours on the water in gathering gloom, rain squalls and a lot of wind to a warm welcome from the Eastbourne clubs.  Huge achievement, not least 14.5K and counting for Prostate Cancer.

I went down and checked on his boat which was hidden between the beach huts. It looked quite battered with a make shift keel band for pulling up rough shores. 

I had some non-sailing friends with me, who were absolutely shocked when i said he had sailed around the UK on it. 

My wife saw him set off this morning and took a picture which is hard to make out, but it was very calm and he was making slow progress. 


Wind should fill in around lunchtime and give a nice beam reach down the coast. It's getting quite stormy again later but hopefully he's where he needs to be before then. Tuesday looks good weather too so fingers cross that can be his last day. 

Incredible effort, I'm extremely impressed and donated.

Stick has been weather bound on Hayling for three days but hopes to make the home run to Eastbourne pier tomorrow, Monday 30th. Check out Steve Cockeril's entertaining interview with him on the Rooster website blog spot.

For those without Facebook, Stick sailed from Salcombe to Weymouth today.  112 kms. Wind gusting to  30+kts as he rounded Portland Bill in the overfalls.  He reports it was a bit hairy....
