Team Vestas Wind: All Hands on Deck, Episode 4

Published on April 9th, 2015

As Teams Vestas Wind seeks to re-join the 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race following the grounding of their VO 65 on November 29, the team has launched a web series to provide updates on their progress.
In this week’s episode, shore manager Neil Cox updates us on the progress of the rebuild from Persico Marine, with exclusive footage from Italy of the joining of the deck to the hull. Video published on Apr 9, 2015.
The plan for the team is to return to the race by the Lisbon stopover in late May/early June to sail the final two legs. The fleet is scheduled to start the eighth leg from Portugal to Lorient, France, on June 7.
