    Default MBY News - I don\'t usually nit-pic...

    ...... but the opening sentence in your latest Spirit of Cardiff update really grates: (http://www.ybw.com/auto/newsdesk/200...39mbynews.html)


    "Spirit of Cardiff are once again able to pick up speed once clear of Saturday's storm and make up some lost time… Clive Tully reports:"


    I presume that Spirit of Cardiff is a single vessel, right? So surely even a schoolchild knows that the sentence should begin "Spirit of Cardiff IS once again ......"

    I'm sorry but I had to say something - I tried to contact MBY News directly to point out the error discreetly but the 'Contact us' link is brokenhttp://www.mby.com/mby/team.htm).

    So, sorry MBY, but you brought it on yourself - can you please correct your grammar? And what about fixing that 'Contact us' link as well!

    Thanks for correcting it - nice one - although the leader article on the ybw.com front page stills shows the old "are" version!

    Perhaps I could offer my services as a copywriter!?
