VIDEO: Rebuilding the Team Vestas Wind VO65

Published on March 10th, 2015

Recovering a wrecked Volvo Open 65 from a remote reef in the Indian Ocean was one thing, rebuilding it to within a few kilos of her original 12.5 tonne weight would be an outstanding achievement, especially in a third of the time it took to build her originally.

Matthew Sheahan went to Persico in Italy to see how the team was going about this monster task and how they would go about getting the Team Vestas Wind boat back in the Volvo Ocean Race. Video published on Mar 10, 2015.
