Certainly way off track. Presumably heading into the wind to then run up the coast?

Don't think so. I guess he'll turn as soon as he can get it on his quarter and then surf to Heysham - shouldn't be long now.

Updated video from this morning:

Seems Ben is still en route to Heysham somehow?

Shocking stuff. 

Not the storm, just the Auldyn truck heading back to the depot. First time I have seen any prom workers this year.

Was hoping for some crosswind landings at Heathrow-on-Sea but it looked almost serene down there. Bad weather gone then?

That must be terrifying.  Looking down and seeing habitual disaster-chaser @Amadeus with a long lens.  Anyone would think they were doomed.

More bad weather due to come tomorrow, with Storm Brendan.

There may not be a boat in the morning.

Yesterdays rather comical offering from the Nations Propaganda Mouthpiece. Harmer and on time are two words which certainly don’t go together. It’s a good job that our useless Department of Incompetence aren’t doing the work, otherwise like the promenade it will take years overrunning and £m’s overbudget, and still nobody will take responsibility and be accountable.

How many clowns went? HRH The Chief Minister and Ray Harmer, and I wonder how many bag carriers and civil servants. As a monthly SPC user all year round, it’s rare that you find politicos on either the Ben or the Manannan. To them, the boats are for the ‘plebs’. I can’t help feeling that Liverpool’s Metro Mayor and other worthies, will be having a good laugh at our useless contingent, who quite frankly aren’t fit, to run the Hospitals newspaper shop. 
I notice that in the time capsule they have buried a Manx Newspaper. I wonder if it’s the one with negative headlines about the landing stage being exhorbitantly expensive, costs allowed to spiral out of control, little to show for the costs involved.

I’m sure the Manx taxpayers are looking forward to picking up the tab for this.

I dread to think what Manx Taxpayers will have to pay on this. I’m going to estimate in excess of £3m. I am sure  it’s mostly decorative and cosmetic, as opposed to structural.
