RIBase
Looks like their fuel tank burst coming around Malin Head. They have retired to Scotland. Malin can be a tough stretch of water - really tough...

Guess the Irish lads with the wee Tornado can hold onto their record for a while yet

Gutted for them...

"Secondary fuel tank has burst. The team is now safely at Largs".

Apparently they were swimming in Diesel

Awesome boat though...

Didn't say, just said secondary tank, so assumed it would have been something rigged for the challenge?

I'll ask...

In the mean time I found this!!!
