Thought I would bring this to attention in case Dad hasn't seen this yet, Bhavik apparently capsized :? in the early hours of this morning, should be fine. Graham finished his row last week

I should point out, the report the day before for bhavik put him only 159 nm away from Antigua, so I reckon he is about 120 ish away

Bit of a disaster for old Buvi, as Dr Jules used to call him

Thanks for the heads up Jeff, we hadnçt looked for a while.

That´s a real shame - I hope he gets it together and doesn´t have to be rescued . . . he is just too close.

Nothing new on the website today . . . he is still trying to fix things. I think he is feeling a bit lost with no electricity.

Bhavik has sighted land this morning, he hopes to be ashore early in the evening.

Lets hope he makes it into port without a Tow!
