Sat 17th July @ 07.38 hrs. The birds at Guernsey have been liberated at 07.30 hrs into a light North East wind in beautiful clear sunshine. Winds in the channel are North Easterly at 7mph gusting to 11mph with the channel clear and in full sun. All the UK is in sunshine with winds generally light Northerly upto the Midlands were it turns light North Westerly. Good luck to all. Steve White Race Advisor, Dom McCoy Chief Convoyer.

Fri 16th July @ 09.40 hrs. This is more like it, the English Channel, Friday morning 😎
Fri 16th July @ 08.57 hrs. Boarding the ferry, reversing up the gangway.
Fri 16th July @ 08.05 hrs. Arrived at Portsmouth dock around 9pm last night, which was fine as ferry leaves for Guernsey early morning. The only criticism I have is if or should I say when we return to France we will have to get away from marking stations approx 30 minutes earlier, so marking times need looking at as you have to book in before 9pm to get night ferry. We were all prepared for the long list of questions from quarantine staff. Thanks to Sid, we had every answer and every document so we went through customs without a hitch. The weather in Guernsey is looking excellent with a light North East wind tomorrow. Visability is perfect, humidity getting higher as day goes on. Hopefully an early liberation is predicted. Birds should average 45 mph, fingers crossed.
