I spoke to the crew yesterday evening... She is leaving the dock at 4.30 AM on Friday - not PM as the original posting suggested - as they're dependent on tides etc
She will head for one of the basins (Kings?) in the Docklands for a couple of weeks more preparation work before setting sail for Southampton. Depending on wind and weather the journey should take about 3 days.
The last time she sailed was just over 6 years ago.
I may set the alarm and take a stroll up there anyway...
Cheers Curly, I would have missed the event.
I was going to come home early tomorrow as the
Livesights email said 4:30pm, but just checked the Livesights
webpage and they now have 4:45am.
Although I wouldn't be surprised if the 4:45am was revised again
due to last minute hitches.
