So after an emotional farewell we boarded the ferry and had our own personal send off from the shore party waiting by the Sandbanks ferry - it was great to see Mum, Dad, Pamps, AnT Sue and Rowan all waving their flags as the ferry went past!  We were also waving like loons - did you hear us shouting goodbye?

To the Stylish Stile Jumpers - we could see the first part of our Purbecks training route (from Old Harry up along the ridge and down behind Swanage, picking up the coast path again at Dancing Ledge and to the coastguard station before the BIG down and up before checkpoint 2) and even that looked a bloody long way!

Good crossing and my rudimentary GCSE French got us to our hotel via taxi from the port, which was in the Octeville suburb of Cherbourg - phew!

Re The send off!
Yes we heard you shouting but we couldn't make out what you were saying! We were yelling and cheering you on your way with tears streaming down our faces! Don't know what the visitors thought!

Hi Gareth & Ssm
Hi there you two, let's have some photos or even better still a short video (I do hope your camera has a video facility).

I'm looking forward to following you around the world, if only on the computer.

Keep well
From
