Flippin fantastic!

...were the first words out of the mouth of Steve from the deck of the support boat, when he rang into me at 2pm today (wednesday) - I think spirits are slight high at the mo.

The Cutters launched into the next leg almost immediately leaving around 1pm - with the similar penalty and the Cutters are now around 1/2 a mile ahead... but Le Fig are still in sight and can present a serious challenge!

The team are "really bouncy!" on a "serious high" <(your not kidding)>- they have a few blisters, but no serious injuries - and the three who are resting are "sleeping like babies" down in the support boat

PERFECT! - lots of bankside support for all the crews

And presently the Cutters have an escort of the local Fireboat

Actually Steve sounded seriously bouncy too...

Great stuff! but lets not forget the valiant efforts of Le Fig. Keep going guys!

The Langstone Lifesavers Fund: The L2P team has set a target of raising £50,000 (€65,000) for charities with a common theme – saving lives.

Our nominated Land-based lifesaving charities included are the British Heart Foundation and Cancer Research UK.
