Around the World in 30 Questions – report, results and content of 3rd Voyage

A rather paltry turnout for the 3rd and final voyage of the 'Around the World' quiz didn't hamper some excellent and competitive quizzing. In the end, the Pilot Whales, which went into this voyage with an 8-point disadvantage, made that up and pipped the Tasmanian Devils to take top position in the series.
