Normally, finishing 32 hours behind the winner would generate about this sort of look, but not when you’re the home team! This is the welcome Team Sanya received in China after a Leg 3 part 2, that has not been without incident for the Chinese backed team with damage to a batten car and more seriously to the area around one of the primary winches.
Unclear what the damage is but rumour has it there is structural damage to the area of the side-deck plus some damage to the winch itself. An easy fix in Southhampton, Sydney or Annapolis but perhaps a bit more challenging in Sanya, China. – Shanghai Sailor.
