Update 21st Oct 2013

The boat is ready to leave the dock. Access to the gang plank has already been removed. Depending on the weather, the Medway Queen will be towed back as soon as there is a two day window to get to Newlyn the first safe point.
There must be less than a force 5 wind (19 knots) down the Severn estuary to set off, so she may not set off until next week.
