vor breaking

pit stop

Sanya’s much cheered lead in the VOR is toast:

Team Sanya were forced to sacrifice their Leg 2 lead and detour west to Madagascar for emergency repairs on Monday, leaving CAMPER, Telefónica and PUMA’s Mar Mostro to fight it out for first place within two nautical miles of each other.

Mike Sanderson and his crew on board Sanya continue to sail cautiously to Madagascar where they will assess options to repair their rigging, which was damaged in the early hours of Monday.

Sanderson said it was fortunate that the team’s new helmsman/trimmer David Rolfe spotted the broken D2, shortly before a planned tack. VideoMore.
