Anybody Going To Lagos?

Hi, All,

If any body is coming across to Lagos, by car in the very near future, I have some mail at the YPC Office that arrived after we left. If you are coming across, and you can fit in a very small package, please let me know!

Many thanks,

Sail repairs

Would really appreciate people’s experience and judgement on dealing with any of the sail repairers within a reasonable driving distance of Cartagena. Will have a hire car with me next week and am arriving this Saturday the 10th of March.

Time for an oil change


Has anyone got an oil extractor pump I could borrow for a few hours in exchange for a beer or two?  Ideally the type with a 5-6l suction vessel, but smaller would be fine.  Also, is there somewhere to dispose of old oil around here?
