Marathon Kayaker: Werner Stoltz who is kayaking from London to Durban via a lengthy stay in Gibraltar sets off tomorrow

After 4 very long months I can happily say that I am finally on my way again tomorrow. Yes it has been 4 months since my visa problems in Morocco, as frustratingly painful as it has been; it turned out to be 4 very important months in my life. Had I kept going I'm sure of it that I would have had many problems with equipment failure and visas. I will leave Gibraltar stronger, better equipped and much more patient. The kayak is now also equipped with and outrigger, the reason for this is to allow me to sleep on the sea and do longer spells on the water due to the problems I will be facing in some African countries.

I would like to say thank you to everyone who went out of their way to help me to get everything sorted so I can get back on the water. Special thank you to Clover Cargo,epic kayaks,Andre de Barr, Ettienne my brother, Willem Hart and Nigel Jefferies. Without their help and support this expedition would have been stranded. André de Barr, the owner of the Tunnel restaurant in Gibraltar helped me by giving me free meals every day while I was in Gib, he also let me stay on his boat in the marina and went even further by sponsoring me with a Satellite phone, credit and a desalinator .Thank you so much Andre and everyone els for the help.

We hope to get the video footage I took in Europe on the website soon. My Sat phone number and cell number will be on contact page. So feel free to send me a text or give me a call whenever you like. Also ,just a reminder for those who don?t know, I am raising money to open an Sports shelter for children infected and affected with HIV/AIDS and street children in South Africa. So please show your support by a small donation on the donations page or by offering your skills, ideas or prayers.With Dreams of the future

Swimming: Gibraltar's representation at Melbourne's WOrld Championships raises sporting concerns by the opposition

The Opposition welcome Gibraltar’s participation as a separate country in the World Swimming championships that are currently taking place in Melbourne, Australia. There are 194 national swimming federations that belong to FINA, the international swimming federation.

The championships include swimming, open water swimming, water polo, diving and synchronized swimming.It is significant to note that Spain is also participating in this event regardless of the presence and participation of swimmers from Gibraltar. The championships started on 17 March and will continue until 1 April.

The Opposition considers that it is hugely ironic that Spanish swimmers are allowed to compete against Gibraltar swimmers in an international context, while at the same time the Gibraltar Football Association has to continue its fight to be admitted as a full member of UEFA following the pressure exerted by the Spanish Government to keep them out. This makes the approach taken by the Spanish Football Federation, on instructions from the Spanish Foreign Ministry, totally indefensible.

Commenting on the matter, Acting Shadow Minister for Sport Steven Linares said:“The Opposition firmly believes that the Spanish Foreign Ministry should stop mixing politics with sport. They should do so by revoking the edict of the Consejo Superior de Deportes which instructs Spanish sporting federations to object to the membership and participation of Gibraltar teams in international sporting associations.The Consejo Superior de Deportes is an organ of the Spanish Government.”Mr Linares added: “The Opposition therefore wish our swimmers in Meblourne all the very best in representing their country abroad. I am sure that their participation in an international event will give everyone invaluable experience for the future.

What a pity that our football teams continue to be deprived of the same experience by the deplorable attitude of Spain.”

Last years semi-finals successes between Justin Broton & Dylan Duo in both the British Darts Organisation ‘International Torremolinos Open’ and The Kronenbourg 1664 ‘Gibraltar Open’ where bettered twice over when both men joined forces to play together at the Torremolinos Open this year.

A historical event for Gibraltar dart players by winning a first major international open event and as such be the 1st Gibraltarians to be inscribed in the famous British Darts Organisation yearbook & diary.

With players from the United Kingdom looking for ranking points it makes the lives of any outsider a common impossibility but not this year.

With previous pairs winners such as: Peter Evison (World Masters champion), Paul Williams (Finland Open Champion), Aaron Turner (Youth World Masters champion) and Dennis Ovens (to mention but a few), all now consummate professionals; it is an honour to have 2 Gibraltarians listed amongst such calibre of darting men.

Lets hope that this recent success will be the ice breaker on the more than common shortfall of local players at international events.

Well done to both players on their win.
