The Gibraltar Government has today condemned a recent spate of incursions by the Guardia Civil into British Gibraltar Territorial Waters. They claim that the two incidents, that took place yesterday involving the GC vessels ‘Rio Cardena’ and ‘Rio Tormes’, ‘are totally unacceptable’.
The incident saw the vessel stop close to the entrance of the South Mole and question the occupants of a leisure boat. The second episode saw the GC vessel ‘Rio Tormes’ escort two Spanish fishing vessels on the East side of the Rock.
John Saunders reports: England’s Nigel Short, three times winner of the Tradewise Gibraltar Masters, fought back from a second round defeat to share the lead with Nikita Vitiugov of Russia at the end of round eight at the Caleta Hotel. The two players have 7/8 and lead Gata Kamsky of USA, Yu Yangyi of China and Maxime Vachier-Lagrave of France by half a point with two rounds remaining.
“What is it about Nigel Short and Gibraltar?” asked tournament director Stuart Conquest on Twitter (@stuthefox). He is not the only chess expert to be amazed by the form Short always shows here, year after year. Nigel Short was ninth in the start of tournament rankings in the Masters but he always raises his game at this tournament and thrives on the atmosphere at the event. He is currently on a run of six wins in a row in pursuit of the £20,000 first prize.
