ORCV Melbourne to Vanuatu (M2V)
On of the best things you get to do with a site like this is show all the marvellous things that go on in sailing. Such was certainly the case with Slinky Malinky and their efforts to stand by Ingenue, while she sorted out her issues. Calls and emails have come in about it, but I have to say, Jeremy Walton really hit it home with this, "What a great idea to make Slinky Malinky the poster shot for seamanship - excellent work in turning back and standing by while Ingenue got sorted. Reminds you of why we go ocean racing and the qualities of the people who do."
Here then is photographic tribute of images by Steb Fisher, to Eric and the crew who didn't blink and remembered the rule, standby to render assistance to any stricken vessel. Nice one Team Slinky.
From the 2010 M2V start.

2009 ORCV MWS. Magnificent stuff.
Have a great time in the sun and with the cocktails, diving, water skiing, game fishing - you get the picture. Well done Slinky Malinky.
