Competition: Name that ARGO float

Tags: Uncategorized

To follow in the grand Cape Farewell ARGO float naming tradition, we declare the competition to name “Arty Bob 2” now open. Suggestions welcome from far and wide (post them in the comment box below). Get your suggestions in by Wednesday 1st October. Top suggestions so far include: Titanic Bob, Broken Mike (ask anyone at the London launch) and Sarah Palin (Marcus’s suggestion that it would be fairly satisfying to throw Sarah overboard into Arctic waters and have her surface only once every 10 days).

      Bobco for the Disco and CO2 link? or Bobinska – little Bob (I think) and Russian boat link? or Bobbank as many in the global banking system suffering that sinking feeling just now! Hope you all return inspired to inspire!

      Still taking names for the Argo. How about Waterloo in honor of ABBA and Disko Bay. You could also go all Greek Mythology and call it the Gemini after Castor and Pollux the twins who sailed with Jason on the original Argos.
