We are on schedule! Unexpectedly Joined by Robbie’s headmaster Chris Davies this evening. Yesterday we negotiated the river Ribble at 3.30 am with 6 foot waves in force 7 winds – not expected or trained for! Survived by beaching on marshland and portaging 10 miles. Given breakfast and shelter by friendly local farmers Bill and Julie Hesketh. Quiet day today: see photo and video update below.
