Jimbo, you can't miss Ribald, he is normally lurking about the entrance to Portsmouth harbour waiting for some poor unsuspecting soul to venture in range of his broadside so he can relieve them of a few dubloons. This is what he looks like. The good news is if you put the throttle down and create lots of smoke you can out run him ensuring your cargo of old spice safely reaches the dockside

Can't wait to see those Volvo boats flying down the Solent - weather forecast is 35knots on Saturday!

I have just heard the tradgedy aboard Ambro 2. Terrible news.

Details from website -

A crew member aboard ABN AMRO TWO, one of the yachts competing in the Volvo Ocean Race 2005-06, died earlier this morning after failing to regain consciousness after being swept overboard from the boat.

The crew member has been named as Hans Horrevoets, 32, of The Netherlands.

ABN AMRO TWO was sailing in five metre seas and 30 knot winds about 1,300 miles from Landís End, England when Horrevoets was washed overboard at 0211GMT. The crew of ABN AMRO TWO immediately turned the boat around, took the sails down and mounted a search and rescue effort. Horrevoets was located and lifted back on board
