If there is any truth in any of it I would stay at home. I have nothing against the organisers but I cannot understand why all the secrecy, it just doesn't make sense. Alan P

irrespective of what happens with the Venture Cup - there will be a minimum of 4 boats heading to Monte Carlo from London on the 7th. Might be 8 if some boats join for the first one or two legs.

So its a jolly? Don't forget you are not allowed anywhere near Gibraltar without being arrested. I am guessing that the Venture Cup organisers didn't tell you that. You can't refuel there with full government, police and customs prior approval. Any breach in the regulations will result in being thrown in jail and your boats being seized and not given back! My advice is to stay closer to the African coast. Alan P

the teams running are aware of the Gibraltar issue - its pretty common knowledge.

A jolly ? well, it will be jolly good fun ! but i am sure there will be some form of competition going on between the teams
