Well, the week has finally arrived and we are on the eve of the clear up. A final pow wow over dinner in the Stromness hotel and we are good to go.
Tomorrow sees us targeting a few shallow sights so that the troops can get sorted in the water, undertake a short training exercise to familiarise themselves with removal procedures and then we can get rolling for real. The forecast last week was appalling but has moderated in the interim so now winds are far less extreme than first predicted.
We have started to post a few news items in the local press and on Facebook
so you can keep abreast of updates there.
