ORCV Melbourne to Vanuatu (M2V)
Then there was one!
Garisenda arrived in Port Vila at 23:21:56 AEST on Saturday. Well done to the Dark Horse. Skipper, Jeff Savage and crew will be delighted, I'm sure. No doubt we'll hear just how delighted, soon enough.
Garisenda, H624 on the right, goes into the line to begin her epic run.
Now with that news, comes the fact that there is just the one boat of the fleet left racing, Slinky Malinky. They should make it in during the morning of Sunday, July 18, which is of course, two weeks after the whole fleet left.
