Celebrity Yacht Race - Boat Swap Scandal
Sensation Mid-Atlantic! Lets hand over for a BS update on the latest on the Celebrity Monaco to Miami yacht race:
Howdy folks, Buff Staysail here, Buff by name and not in the buff, honest [Ed: thats better]
The crew of "Re-invention", Madonna and Kylie have successfully rendezvoused with the troubled "Definitely Will Be", packed to the gills by an overload of crew and testosterone.
With both of the Gallagher brothers, Jay Kay and Robbie packed in the confined space of an Open 60 something was bound to give, though no one would have placed bets on it being Noel's nose (or at least not your truly - looks like thats another hundred bucks Buff's never going to see again).
At the request of the organising committee it was arranged they would transfer to the girls boat. But it was not to be.
In an unexpected development it wasn't a one way transfer, and when the two boats went their separate ways each had three occupants.
Seemed like Madonna accepted an invite from Noel and Liam to join them, leaving Kylie with her two men sailing off into the sunset.
Now there are many of those that say good on ya pint-sized! After the cancer scare and the men trouble thats just what the love doctor ordered.
But the race committee is checking the rules and it looks bad news for both boats. You've got to end the race with the same crew with no outside assistance.
It also look like there's more trouble looming for the brothers on "Definitely Will Be". The news that they are being joined by Madonna is not going down well with their other halves, currently sailing nearby on the All Saints sponsored "Sinners and Sailors".
Looks like there could be yet another rendezvous and crew swap coming.
Watch this space!
