Watch it now!


After a tumultuous start to Leg 3, a low passes over the team, bringing light winds and an opportunity for a routine inspection of the boat after the recent heavy weather. During this inspection, the team finds stress fractures on the rudder.

With bigger seas over the horizon, and only one spare rudder onboard, the decisions effecting the rest of the leg need to be made now.

15:00 – Ocean Race

So stimmt die Reihenfolge wieder 🙂

Ohne Rosie und Will, die den Riss oben am Mast repariert haben,  wäre die Malizia schon mit Mastbruch ausgeschieden !  (Boris hat ja bekanntlich ein Höhenangst-Problem)

Habe mich oben am Mast einer 6,5 KR-Yacht, also in ca. 15 m Höhe, auch nicht besonders wohl gefühlt, wobei das primäre Problem darin bestand, nicht aus dem aalglatten Bootsmannsstuhl herauszurutschen, als ich den Körper streckte, um die Topplicht-Halterung geradezubiegen.
