They left around 07:15 this morning from Christchurch and have rowed as far as Lymington where they’ve stopped for the moment. Apparently, it got a little ‘hairy’ around Hurst Point but it went well.
Next stop is Portsmouth.
Check out some photos (courtesy of Duotraq and Paul Thompson) below of them setting off – you might be able to spot the drone hovering over them (expertly piloted by Aerial Ace Photography) – we’re hoping to get some great overhead photos from that, which we’ll make sure we share.
