Over the past few days it's been confirmed that, even in the 21st century, boats are the most reliable form of transportation. While those preferring flying - this less scenic, environmentally atrocious but admittedly faster means of transportation - have been earthbound for three days, the Wong is as reliable as ever.
Today was an extra special day as the Wong left the wall for the first time in three months! Even though she's been happy there, receiving lots of TLC and admiration, she is happier bobbling on the waves. Due to tides we had to move her to the pontoon where work continues for another week.
With old and new friends dropping in, some for coffee, some to secure a bunk for the months ahead, the energy aboard is buzzing. We are stunned and amazed by the hospitality and support from Greenwich Yacht Club whose help has been invaluable.
Each day is one closer to departure but as some of you might now we are not leaving London without a proper goodbye party! This is to take place up the river, next to Tower Bridge on Saturday, April 24. It's a very exciting day indeed! We will arrive at Hermitage Moorings around noon to welcome the press aboard from 1PM. Come down for a bite to eat and be part of the celebration! We will also start shooting the documentary from here, so if you want to be perpetuated on the Wong, this is your opportunity :)
As for final departing date, May 1, it's sneaking upon us quickly now. Buckle up!
