Gipsy Moth IV Rescue mission

I know it's not related to RIB's, but people might be interested to follow the attempts to rescue Gipsy Moth IV from the reef she grounded on earlier this week about 150 miles from Tahiti in the Pacific.

A good link with daily updates on the attempt can be found here

After all that money to restore her - after all the years she sailed - what muppet was in charge I wonder?

Keep a look out for the blind man... that did not (obviously) see where he was going - and did not know how to navigate -

The gear that was fitted to the boat, to avoid this, make it a disgrace to the whole thing -
