Team Vestas Wind: All Hands on Deck, Episode 7
Published on May 7th, 2015
As Team 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.
The team is getting closer and closer to rejoining the race, but it’s not all smooth sailing at Persico Marine. The team is back together and the boat is still on track, but there’s still work to do as they prepare for Lisbon and Leg 8. It’s preparation stations! Video published on May 7, 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.
