Record Breaking Speed?

Will we see a record soon? The current is 596.6 NM in 24 hours. Guess the best 24 hour run (NM) of this leg and win a pair of Jaba shades. Also, even if it’s not part of the contest, we wanna know what team it is…

Not Sanya this time, limping back to NZ.

      Intressant att jämföra styrteknik med whitbreadfilmen om The Card.
      I den sistnämnda får de nästan hänga två man för att parera med ratten.

      Ett tydligt tecken på hur mycket det hänt på utvecklingssidan av smörjolja till ratt- och roderlager.

    After conducting a full assessment of the bow damage suffered 24 hours ago CAMPER with Emirates Team New Zealand has decided that the damage is too significant to repair at sea and therefore will need to make a brief stop at the Chilean port of Puerto Montt to carry out a permanent repair.

    Exact details are still being worked through but the current intention is to suspend racing when close to Puerto Montt.

    CAMPER is not withdrawing from Leg Five and after completing repairs will resume racing from where it was suspended.

    Spirits remain high aboard and all crew are focused on getting back into racing as soon as possible. Skipper Chris Nicolson said from the yacht: “This is the only option that is satisfactory to us from a safety perspective, but also keeps us in the race. It’s a hard decision to make but we are all in good spirits. As we have said in the past the Southern Ocean throws up the best and worst days of your life – recent days certainly haven’t been the best days but we will get through this uninjured and ready to continue in the race.”

      Är det inte masterna så är det skroven som inte håller!
      Nu är det två båtar kvar som krigar på detta ben. Kan inte riktigt tycka att det är ok med så många haverier.

      Man undrar ju hur det gick under däck..

    Battling through the Southern Ocean, CAMPER with Emirates Team New Zealand took the prestigious IWC Schaffhausen Speed Challenge Trophy with a distance of 528 nautical miles.

    ardo med 525 var klart närmast. Maila mig på för att få ett par brillor skickade.

    Vad som var helt otroligt var att gissningen var “525 telefonica”, vilket var precis så mycket som telefonica seglade som bäst. Hur är det möjligt?

      det var nog mer tur än skicklighet, men jag trodde inte att nån skulle klara rekordet i de förhållande som fanns.
