 VOR65  Ocean Race 2017/18  Itajai BRA  'Scallywag' arrived in Itajai
Yesterday, three days before the start to leg 8 of the VOR over 7'500nm from Itajai to Newport RI, USA, 'Scallywag' arrived at the port of call in Brazil. After the tragic loss at sea of John Fisher GBR, David Witt AUS abandoned leg 8 and did a stopover at the closest harbour in Chile. The transfer to Brazil around Cape Horn was done by a substitute team. In the coming two days, yacht and equipment have to be examined, repaired or replaced to be in shape for the next leg, as the materilal stress during the crossing of the Southern Seas was tremendous.
The news and the video.
