Pirates of the Caribbean is back in the race again following a quick pitstop at Eclipse Island 17/1/06

Position 35,1.90S , 117,53.16E

Speed 0 knots, Course: 152 deg

The repairs to the Black Pearl have been made and she will leave the dock
in Albany within the hour. It will then take her one more hour to reach the
point at which she suspended racing yesterday. From that point in time,
she will be racing toward Melbourne.

Today has been a very busy day in Albany, fabricating and fitting new
parts. The Pirates would like to give a special thanks to Paul Terry, Ray
Woonings of Wallace Engineering and his entire team, and Eleanor Hay of
Movistar who helped us get sorted out with accommodation when we arrived
late last night.

The trip to Melbourne should take about five days.
