The long wait is finally over and Eric has approved the weather for this evening! I am meeting him at the marina at 615 this evening (115 East Coast Time) so it looks like I will be setting off from Samphire Hoe around 7. The fast approach of the end of the neap tide means Qing is now swimming with Stewart so we get to swim at the same time, couldn't have worked out better!
I know many people have asked about trackers. Eric's boat, the Pathfinder, can be tracked at http://www.pathfindercharter.com/Tracker.html
Stewart's boat, the Sea Leopard, I will have to look up...
Hope to be posting soon about how amazing the swim went :)
