LATEST UPDATE 2204BST 7 JUNE

Still waiting to hear official confirmation but sources in Japan have reported that local news has been carrying news stories about Charlie and Sarah Outen, his British compatriot whose boat Gulliver was also damaged by Mawar.

In particular, the channel has reported that an aircraft reached Charlie’s position at about 1350BST.  This spotter plane is now overflying between Sarah and Charlie.

Latest weather reports provided by Charlie’s weather router and fellow shore support, Tony Humphreys, indicates that the wind speed is now gradually dropping.  It should fall to 30kts by tomorrow morning and by the time we’re expecting assistance to reach Charlie, it will be down to some 15kts.  This should make Charlie’s recovery safer and less difficult.

  • Helen Outen:

    HUGS Charlie. You must be feeling quite drained and exhausted, BUT stay strong and you’ll soon be ok. The boat is on it’s way……stay strong and keep safe. everyone is rooting for you in UK.
    Helen Outen

  • Fi & Matilda Sumner:

    We are so thrilled to hear you have been located and are safe and well. Stay safe Charlie! So immensely proud of what you have achieved my friend – you are such a huge inspiration and should be very proud of yourself and Blossom. XX
