Tell you what- I will add to the prize if the boat makes it. The crew- ahh they are just too lazy to bail water effectively....

Hummingway, I assume that all the crew should be female and less that 16 y.o.

hummingway, ... don't forget to file a cruise itinerary with the proper authorities, sometimes the Somalis will send out sea cadets to assist in these maters!

i was wondering if the ship would be spending anytime in Somalia itself, as i would like to use that time to buy cigarettes and a few bottles of champagne for the down wind jolly around cape horn. I am so excited... Does Somalia have a wine culture ? as i would like to tell the captain to stock up on some Somalian red for the Sunday roasts at sea

I know a few ex SBS guys who may come along to offer some security, they're very cheap, not more than £1,000 a day. Oh, and they're not bothered by the standard of the food.
