Well, it is almost here at last and we are about as ready as we can be. We have passed the pre-race scrutiny and tried on our helmets - a sight to behold and not one for this site!
Most of the Historic Classic boats are here and we have met the crews. Tonight we meet Princess Anne and tomorrow she will signal the race to start.
We hope to be able to post our progress daily but that may not always be possible but any reader will be able to see where we are from the link on the Home Page (MarineTrack).
So faithful followers - the next posting should be from Plymouth - no doubt after a glass of their special gin!!
Good luck to everyone.
