So they refer obliquely to 'mechanical issues' forcing them to turn back 30 nm out from the Falklands.
Is my understanding correct that the sail drive was those 'mechanical issues'?
I read that somewhere but can't remember where.
Not a good look for the supplier. I can't remember who supplied the sail drives and engines for the Volvo Ocean Race, don't think it was Yanmar, definitely wasn't Beta (although they do a good sail drive).
Nah, I can't work out who the supplier is of sail drives and engines for the Volvo Ocean Race.

At least they got back to the Falklands safely. Must have been a bit disconcerting to have mechanical problems as well as no sailing capability.

a streetlamp pole - what a stroke of genius! Wait for one of them to go into the next edition of the safety regs!

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

Interesting that the sailing team didn't make the trip. They swapped out for a delivery crew to get the boat to Itajaí.
