2 a.m.: I hate the noise of that stupid alarm on my phone! What makes it worse is I’ve been half awake for the past three hours in fear that it won’t go off and I’ll miss the ferry and mess up the whole day. Looking at the map, the distances, time of sunset and all the other factors, the only way to make this work was to drive through the night up to Yorkshire, so it’s the 3 a.m. ferry or nothing.
3 a.m.: Yep, I made it on board, slugging all my camera gear up onto the car ferry in the pitch black, what a pain in the ass. At least I’m all on track! Time for first coffee of the day, I doubt ‘Hunty’ is even awake yet!
4 a.m.: After a quick re shuffle of equipment, myself, Timo Mullen, Paul Hunt and Jamie Hancock are all aboard in Timo’s van and ready to roll – and so the banter begins. Timo and Hunty are all excited about the days sailing while poor Jamie will have to sit on the side lines and film while his broken leg goes through the closing stages of rehabilitation. Fair play that he’s come along for the ride!
