Tony Bullimore breaks an 11 day silence

After 11 days of silence, Tony Bullimore and his crew on
the 102ft catamaran Doha 2006 were finally able to make contact with their
support team.

Bullimore reported that their Mini M phone had been out of
satellite range, and their two satellite phones are having a problem with
the aerial connections.

Bullimore is sailing to Hobart to make a bid to
break the 70-day barrier for sailing solo around the world. His team expects
to reach Albany, Western Australia on Tuesday, where they will be making a
short pit-stop before continuing on to Hobart Tasmania. See
