Wednesday 2 December

Although it's still windy, the wind has dropped down a notch or two to force 6, from force 9 yesterday afternoon. The sun is peeping through the clouds here and there, and the ferry is sailing again, after missing the afternoon crossing yesterday.

I am pleased to note that the British yachtsmen, who had been detained by the Iranian authorities since last week, have now been freed. Following a delay due to a religious holiday, the Revolutionary Guard got round to interrogating the sailors and it transpired that their presence in Iranian waters had been a mistake. The five crewmembers of the "Kingdom of Bahrain" were released and towed into international waters earlier this morning.
