The kids and the race officers in ribs had quite a moment at a regatta in S America last week - an Argentine sub surfaced in the middle of a race and nicked one of the racing marks!

Can we have some suitable photo cations please (don't cry for me etc)

As my ex RN Submariner Weapons Engineer would say: "There are only two types of ships. Submarines and targets"

"No matter how big the sea may be, sometimes two (very unequally matched) ships meet".

I thought a sub was a boat not a ship

- Like the rest of the Argentine armed services the force is struggling to maintain its readiness in the absence of funds for maintenance and training. All three boats have maintenance difficulties and between them spent just 19 hours submerged in 2012 -
