Looks like they might be shadowing Team Jersey's broken down Bat 28 into Wexford now.

Pascoe RIB #96 Mr Mako driven by Jamie Edwards & John Lindsay appears to be overall leader so far today.

Not sure if it's just because I'm using Firefox but there seems to be a problem with MarineTrack. It's been fine (apart from the hiccups of 'Too many connections' yesterday) but just now I refreshed it and got a pop up box which I couldn't get rid of except by using Task Manager, which then, without warning, shut all the windows I had open, not just the MarineTrack one! I tried again and got the same problem but with a different message in the pop up box. Anyone else had something similar?

P.S. Make sure you save anything vital before refreshing MarineTrack!

Just found out, if I 'OK' every pop up, eventually it places all the markers on the map and then goes away! It never used to do that - very strange!

Mr Mako was first in to Bangor, but beaten to first place by Wetpunkt who started half an hour later.

We have broke down 25 miles or Ireland with one blown engine. We have made 6 knots for 4 hours and got in at rosslare. We have an engineer with us and plan if we can get our new parts and oil to arrive at Bangor at 2am running along with 42 bat boat. Starting to feel tired now. Bit fed up of paying catch up but not giving in yet. Seems the more basic ribs with single simple outboards are going best. Top speed so far 62 knots.

Really sorry to hear that Tom. Tim and myself have just got back to Portsmouth. What a shame it has happened.
