• Southampton Maritime Festival

    The show was well attended and Challenge had plenty of visitors. There were many very positive comments from the visitors e.g. 'best in show' and some of our new initiatives such as the video display in the chartroom proved very popular.

    Everything worked well, which was a tribute to all the hard work that has been put into Challenge over the last year, often under less than ideal circumstances.



    Main Engine Maintenance


    Investigations have been carried out into the squeak/slight knock coming from the main engine low pressure valve/cylinder when running. Everything has now been opened for inspection, including the l.p. cylinder cover to check out the l.p. piston rings and liner, but nothing untoward has been found. We have therefore decided that this a feature of the engine!
