Progress Report 1:58pm Friday 2nd May

Just had a report from "Steve on board Sea Satin"

After a hearty breakfast near by to Tower Bridge.,.. the team assembled..

They had a fantastic start - they launched from Westminster Bridge and pulled away at their usual 24 strokes per minute. They've made great progress, as the Thames is calm and beautiful (Ed: thats a new description for the Thames!)

They've already started to pull away from the opposition. As I got the call, they were just passing under the M25 Queen Elizabeth Bridge
(Ed: probably making better progress than the bank holiday traffic)

The opposition can just be spotted in the distance, some 1/2 to 3/4 mile BEHIND the LCRC team.

They already managed one full change - and all is well.

More details as I get them..
