I have to admit that it has been a long summer and now autumn as I have never had to wait so long for a major swim.
The end is in sight as I will be looking to cross the Straits of Gibraltar sometime in the next 10 days.
Looking at the weather forecast for Tarifa does not make hugely satisfying reading as there will be some days that appear too windy for swimming.
Hopefully there also seems to be a few suitable days so I am confident of getting away.
No repeat of last year please!
The Internet connection was rubbish last year but I will do my best to keep you updated.
