No, but there was a lot of it used!

Some pics of the Fuel Team and their setup - VERY impressive outfit, you can see where the money went

The big Suzuki 300 Leanburn on the back of the Stormforce had a long hard day with seven POB. She had a two ton boat, seven big lads and very mixed seas to contend with and still appeared to return very impressive fuel figures. That Jonathan "ScotSeats" can fairly push a boat on too...

Safe journey home guys.

Team Mash II has also retired due to crew member with back problems making it too painful for him to proceed.

Both teams now have to return to the UK to collect cars and trailers and then return to collect their boats.
The teams are good spirited and viewing it as all part of the challenge.

Top Hat had to return to Killybegs due to a turbo problems on one engine, Mooney Boats in Killybegs fixed the problem and Top Hat were back on their way at 12.30


All above info from RIP&RC 2013 Facebook page.

Looks like Cetus retired too but not sure why!

Sounds like they are heading back via water to Kilmore. Not sure it would be any less distance to carry on, so l suspect it means they can go at their own pace.

Seawolf 15 mins from arival, Merlin ~45mins and Top Hat Just over an hour away. Looks like a CoastGaurd Vessell is accompanying them (Achill CG Delta) on AIS. Hoping there hasn't been more problems...
