William in Royan

I had an email from William on Thursday afternoon in which he told me that he

“had a good look around this afternoon”

which included a chance to examine the course of the 48hr race first-hand.

William tells me that the

“Weather is warm with a piercing bright sun between 10 and 5pm”

but added that it is

“then very cold overnight”

– which equates to a

“big contrast between day and night.”

Hopefully neither dazzling sunshine nor a drop in night-time temperature will have any adverse effect on the runners, but as always we will find out for sure during the course of the race.

More news as I get it,
