90% chance of departure tonight at 1800

The weather reports confirm that Olly and George have a weather window large enough to get them home starting at 1800 tonight. The reason that it isn't 100% certain that they are leaving is because the seas around North Rona are still very rough, so they cannot launch the boat off it's steep rocky shoreline.

If the weather reports are accurate then the roughness will subside and they can launch the boat to come home. 

If they were to depart tonight, they will paddle through the night and land at Balnakeil Bay, just outside Durness tomorrow morning between 0900 - 1100. If anyone is in the area then please come along and welcome them in!

For now, we cross our fingers for the seas to calm and for Olly and George to paddle safely home.
