Getting ready to set off Round Britain

We are in the final days of preparation before setting off westwards towards the Scilly Isles on the first leg of our Round Britain attempt.

Today Stuart brought down a beautiful handcrafted emergency tiller made from the finest ash (to be shock resistant) with a nice octagonal section, nicely chamfered at the handle end to fit nicely.  It means that if we ever lose hydraulic power to the steering we can still navigate using the emergency tiller.
