[edit] Expedition Plans

This is a planned expedition. Neil might aim for the 4pm slot if the weather looks OK. Water wings and a drowned rat costume might come in handy. High winds are forecast so be prepared for a Mother Nature abort.

07:30 is low tide (missed it). 18:30 is the next low tide. It's a full moon spring tide so the sea will go out further than normal.

[edit] Expedition - Failed

Neil got to Aldeburgh at about 18:15 and walked to within 24 meters of the hashpoint. The sea was rough and the beach sloped away quickly so a paddle was out of the question.

A fish and chip supper improved the despondent mood although the plaice was dried out. The best fish and chip shops cook the fish, fresh for each order. This takes an extra five minutes but it's worth it.

After the food, Neil tried again and got to within 21 metres.

On dry land in an open space or field, this might count as success as the last few metres could obviously be completed. Today Neil only gets consolation prizes. Even worse, Neil would have got "Last Man Standing", had the expedition succeeded.

The sea was too rough for safe paddling ...
