3rd July 2006
We all went to see Newport Yacht Club so that Jeff and Mark could see and be inspired by the scene that greeted Gerry on his arrival back in 2005. We also did some shopping in Newport for our families and had a general look around.
That done, we all went back to Priate Cove marine yard, where the yacht has been to date. As Gerry and Mark started to put our clothes and fresh food onboard, Jeff returned our hire car. We then all had a small nap so that we could get up at 2:00am (local USA time) and set sail at 3:00am (or 8:00am on the 4th of July in the UK).
