The Weather Breaks

Two-day forecast is for calm seas and sunny skies. In other words, awesome coditions. My Captain will pilot an Aussie swimmer named Duncan Adams tomorrow morning, and we are a go for Saturday. As we have seen, the weather changes rapidly around here, but all indicators show a great day for the attempt on Saturday. We are eager.

This morning after breakfast, Liz and I spoke at length with Lynne Smith, a fellow American, who crossed the Channel in 9:50 on Monday in heavy seas. She told us that she climbed boulders to finish her swim and was extremely generous with advice and good wishes. We also learned more about the Victoria Guest House where we are staying. Channel swimming royalty such as Marcy MacDonald and Anne Cleveland have stayed here.

Thanks again for the comments. I feel like you all are staying in the hotel room with us. Adios, Gino.
