Lord Sugar puts his 181ft Super Yacht Lady L up for sale

Alan Sugar of "The apprentice" fame is so proud of his wealth that he once posted a photo of his tax bill to HMRC for £59,000,000.  For reasons unknown he has decided to sell his Yacht... Lady L (named after his wife). A once treasured possession it has caused great mystery to why he is selling. Edmiston Luxury Yacht Brokers have confirmed the sale of the yacht but have refused to comment on the reason for its sale.  Sugar is selling the yacht for £12,600,000 and was last seen onboard in June in Puerto Banus, Spain. The Sunday Time Rich List Lord Sugar has a fortune of £1.25 Billion.  We hope that he may be upsizing... and if he needs Crew... he knows he can find them on Yotspot ;)

Tales from Mallorca - Two days in an underwater cave running out of oxygen

Three months ago, Xisco Gràcia experienced what he describes as every diver's worst nightmare - he found himself in an underwater cave, relying on an air pocket for survival. As hours turned into days he realised he might not be found in time. On Saturday 15 April, Xisco Gràcia slipped into the water in Mallorca for a routine dive.

They swam underwater for an hour to get there. While Gràcia spent time collecting rock s...
