Kiwi skipper to leave Fortaleza today, Friday 30/3/07

Graham Dalton is due to re-join the Velux 5-Oceans today, Friday. After a catalogue of disasters, including illness, being robbed and then finding that the bulb of his keel had fallen off few expected him to race again. But he has managed to get a new bulb for his keel cast and, once it is fitted today, he will re-join the race, attempting to reach Norfolk, Virginia more than 48 hours before the re-start on 15 April.
