Just found it! Thanks for the English version... your idea Andre?

If you enjoy following this journey, you would probably enjoy reading this book: http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...639040-3718207

Yes it was cos not many of us speak Estonian. Got the book last year for Xmas from my mother but just have not had the time to read it only glanced throught it.
Our rib cruise to Poland 2 years ago in the cabin rib was nothing like this trip the Estonians are doing now. We had calm seas ect , shorts & T shirts all the way.
Also what not many of you know, ribs were new to these guys and I mean new. The same goes for tides they just could not get over the HW & LW at Littlehampton. There are no tides where they come from.

Looking at their post of this morning it seems they had very big sea yesterday and expect up to 5 mtrs today. see www.veel.ee

Just read on their web page that 11 miles west of the Tagamoisa peninsula the steering cable broke and they had to call for help. That is all I know . It is a great shame as they were already in Estonian waters having experienced bad weather all the way. I can only hope that they are safe and that the steering can be fixed so that under their own "steam" they can take the rib home.

Steering cable - on a boat that size with twins? Why not hydraulic?
