Just like London buses, no news for eons and then it all comes along at once!

Having uploaded all the latest blogs from the yachts on TRANSGLOBE a little earlier today (sent by the crews a few days ago but only now being uploaded to the event website owing to the usual lack of resources – people and funding back at HQ), I now hear that the first boat is due into Cape Town tomorrow afternoon and….it is the Navy boat, ADVENTURE! Now this is the crew that has been very quiet throughout this stage of the exercise owing to “spare parts not being delivered on time for the Iridium Phone on board”. Hmmm! Or was it just a great big ruse?!!
