Go East - Film crew update!

After leaving Newlyn around 2130 yesterday evening the trawler Crystal Sea II is still steaming East.

The average wave height at the Sevenstones weather station has been around four metres over the last 24 hours.

Despite an easing of the wind over the last 36 hours the poor sea conditions on the grounds south of Newlyn where the boat would normally work at this time of year have forced skipper David Stevens to go east and chase cuttlefish off Brixham.

10:00am and the wind speed off Land's end has reached near gale force approaching 35 knots

With the weather forecast giving more poor weather and the wind speed currently climbing this should give the film crew a chance to find their sea legs!
