Published on May 15th, 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.
In this special edition of All Hands on Deck, judgment has been passed: Team Vestas’ VO65 meets the class measurements and is one step closer to rejoining the fleet in Lisbon. Volvo Ocean Race measurer James Dadd and Persico Marine’s Matteo Bisio give us the details. Video published on May 15, 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.
