    CNN issued a correction regarding the value, now there is no figure stated. Wonder if Comanche will be for sale for as long as Athena and Hanuman have been? Funny thing about Hanuman, it came about in much the same way as Comanche, wanting to have the fastest J-Class. Hire the crew of Puma...

    Nothing to add to the dick-waving, but MC3 is for sale at a price I would describe as a bargain. Mate of mine just finished 3 seasons on her and said she's in top nick. Laying in Monaco, waiting for my numbers to roll over!

    So what news of Syd's new ride?

    Ah right, I meant that the bill payer wasn't the same person. The wages bill for Rio's first sail was around $25K, only so many pros in Auckland I guess.

    So what news of Syd's new ride?

    What do you mean? You know the BG and Rio programs aren't run by the same people, right?

    Old Whitbread/Volvo Ocean Race yachts

    Cuba Libre does the Caribbean circuit and occasionally heads to the Med. Short handed her from Antigua to Bermuda last year on a delivery, was an absolute peach to helm.

    Ludde having another crack at S2H?

    Auckland viaduct rumour mill in full effect, but I've been told that Tokolosh VI (aka Nicorette / Audi etc etc) is coming down to Auckland to get a new nose and arse, with Rodney from Evolution Sails heading up the project. Could be a slow trip down here for the boat though, as it's currently...
