Wanted - A Phoenican Dinghy in Gibraltar in the next week

Is there anyone in or near Gibraltar who might be able to help out the Phoenician ship bound for London via the tin mines of Cornwall, with a dinghy?

Having circumnavigated Africa as the Phoenicians did 2600 years ago in a 20m replica Phoenician Galley, they are on passage from Phoenicia (Syria) via Cyprus, Crete, Malta, Sardinia and the Costa Brava, they are due in Gib in a few days.

See their latest posting of 27th April hoping for a dinghy to appear in Gib, here

Yellowbrick Tracking - YBlog - Phoenicia's Voyage to London

Quote - "Apart from getting the ship ready for sea again there were a couple of funny incidents. First the dinghy painter broke and local fishermen shouted at us that the dinghy was floating away from the ship which was at anchor. Cue now for Philip to strip off and swim after it in underpants. He just managed to catch up with it before it hit the rocks but by then it had nearly flooded. Finding help with just underpants on and an outboard motor that wouldn’t start – was err …bordering on comical. As was the eventual attempt to get said kit back on board without it sinking completely…which we managed but only just. We need a new/second hand inflatable in Gibraltar if anyone has one to donate/sell."

They expect to be in Gib in the next few days, westerly gales permitting.
