Balloons head into the night
As the balloons start their first full night of flying, we still have 19 balloons airborne. The pack is lead by the French team of Sebastien Rolland and Vincent Leys, who are about to cross into Spain. There is a big bunch of balloons just off the French coast west of Bordeaux, all travelling at between 10-15kts.
I'm off home for some rest - you will be looked after by Jo Slade who will being updating this site throughout the night.
