PicoMicroYacht Crossed the Channel
We set off at 6.30 am yesterday, the leaving time delayed by two hours. About seven hours later we arrived at Cap Gis Nez. I will post about the trip this evening. Many thanks for all the people who kindly supported the event and who gave generously to Epilepsy Research UK.
