Team Vestas Wind: All Hands on Deck, Episode 6
Published on April 30th, 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.
Team Vestas gets back to business in Bergamo. This week, Chris Nicholson updates us on team dynamics whilst Neil Cox shows us progress on the boat. With barely three weeks until they plan to leave Persico Marine, it really is “All Hands on Deck” for Team Vestas Wind!
The refit begins – as the components are gathered together to be added to the boat structure, TeamVestas’ Neil Cox outlines the busy plans for the coming weeks as we prepare to finalise our boat building before the end of April. Video published on Apr 30, 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.
