Vestas onderweg naar Itajai.
Jammer dat je ze niet op de Tracker kan volgen.

Scallywag is met een reserve bemanning uit Chili vertrokken. Via Straat Magellan gaan ze naar Itajai in Brazilie.
Vestas is de boot aan het klaar maken. Ze hopen vandaag of morgen tre vertrekken naar Itajai.

Ze hebben er toch ook maar een noodmastje opgezet.  Grin

Two teams have retired from Leg 7 and both Vestas 11th Hour Racing and Team SHK/Scallywag continue to progress plans to get their boats back in the race. News is expected from each team shortly.

Dus zowel Vestas als Scallywag komen terug in de race.

Het is knokken tussen Brunel en Dongfeng.
Na 6600 mijl nog een fotofinish  Huh Huh

Zo te zien is Scallywag binnen gekomen in Puerto Mont.
Vestas ligt nog steeds in Port Stanley.

Brunel bijna 7000 nm. afgelegd
blijft deze wedstrijd wel bestaan met die ongelukken Bart ?
en dan bedoel ik niet een kapotte mast

Die race blijft bestaan Jacob. Elk bemanningslid weet wat de risico's zijn.
In editie 2006 / 2007 is Hans Horrevoets van ABNAMRO 2 ook overboord geslagen en verdronken op de Atlantic.
Tot slot moesten ze (ABNAMRO 2) ook nog even de bemanning van Bouwe Bekking redden van de Mouvistar.
Vermoedelijk is de kiel afgebroken. De verlaten boot is nooit meer terug gevonden.

De Vestas was op weg Itajai, maar is na een paar uur weer terug gekeerd naar Port Stanley i.v.m. mechanische problemen.

De plastic boot had gisteren ook problemen met het tuigage van de mast.
Ze hebben een poosje rustig aan moeten doen.
Na overleg met het walpersoneel is er een noodvoorziening aangebracht.
De mannen gaan weer met frisse moet verder.

Vestas zonder mast.
Onderste stukje weghalen en het bovenstuk op de voet zetten en gauw weer verder.  Grin Grin Grin

Vestas heeft een gebroken mast en is opweg naar de Falklands om te repareren.

Op 30 maart 2018  om 15:59 maart een mastbreuk  11 km ten zuidoosten van de falklandeilanden. De hele bemanning is veilig en ongedeerd. De mast brak net boven de eerste verspreider maar is afgesneden om de romp tegen schade te beschermen.

Op het moment van de mastbreuk was het vestas aan het zeilen in een 25-tot-30 knoop noordelijke wind met drie meter golven.

De volvo ocean 65 is zeewaardig, en de bemanning vaart nu naar de falklandeilanden waar het team, samen met de kust en de volvo ocean race, de volgende stappen zal evalueren om de boot en bemanning zo snel mogelijk naar Brazilië te krijgen,  .

Het team verwacht geen hulp van andere teams of de mrcc, die op de hoogte zijn gesteld. We zullen updates blijven verstrekken als ze beschikbaar zijn.

MAPFRE, the overall leader in the Volvo Ocean Race, has suspended racing to attend to damage to their mast track.

A section of the mast track came unglued from the mast five days ago, but until now the team has done a good job of limiting the impact of the damage on its performance through various jury-rig solutions.

But now, with 2,000 miles of racing left to the finish line in Itajaí, Brazil, skipper Xabi Fernández has elected to suspend racing as of 18:32:20 UTC, and just six miles west of Cape Horn, to make a more effective repair to both the mast track and mainsail. Three members of the shore team are in the area to assist the sailors.

Under the rules of the Volvo Ocean Race, a team that suspends racing may use its engine, get outside assistance or take on equipment to make a repair.

The penalty for suspending racing is that you must remain out of the race for a minimum of 12 hours, and return to the same location where you suspended before resuming the race. Given the speed of the other boats, this latest development has the potential to knock the overall race leader back significantly.

The forecast, however, works in MAPFRE’s favour. A ridge of high pressure is expected to slow the frontrunners and allow the trailing boats to catch up.

“A complete restart just after the Falklands,” is how leg leader Bouwe Bekking describes it.

Meanwhile, each of the other teams have now rounded Cape Horn, paying tribute to Scallywag’s John Fisher, who was lost overboard on Monday, as they did so.

Scallywag op weg naar Chili.
Ik dacht dat hij helemaal van het scherm gehaald was; nee dus

Zou Brunel eieren voor z'n geld kiezen en binnendoor gaan  Huh Huh

The following story has been issued on behalf of Team Sun Hung Kai / Scallywag

On Monday 26 March, Team Sun Hung Kai / Scallywag lost John Fisher overboard in the Southern Ocean, approximately 1,400 nautical miles west of Cape Horn.

Despite conducting an exhaustive search in gale force conditions, he has not been recovered.

“This is the worst situation you can imagine happening to your team,” said SHK/Scallywag Team Manager Tim Newton, who has spoken with skipper David Witt and navigator Libby Greenhalgh about what happened on Monday.

“We are absolutely heart-broken for John’s family and friends. I know for David, he has lost his best friend. It’s devastating.”

Newton says he asked the crew to put together a timeline of events to ensure accurate reporting on the incident and it follows here:

* On Monday, 26 March, SHK/Scallywag was racing in Leg 7 of the Volvo Ocean Race from Auckland, New Zealand to Itajai, Brazil, approximately 1,400 nautical miles west of Cape Horn

* Weather conditions were 35-45 knots with 4 to 5 metre seas with showers reducing visibility. It was 15 minutes before sunrise

* The team was sailing with a single reef in the mainsail and the J2 jib. The Fractional 0 (FR0) sail was hoisted but furled

* At roughly 1300 UTC SHK/Scallywag surfed down a large wave leading to an accidental crash gybe

* John Fisher was on deck, in the cockpit. At the time, he was moving forward to tidy up the FR0 sheet and had therefore unclipped his tether

* As the mainsail swung across the boat in the gybe, the mainsheet system caught John and knocked him off the boat. The crew on board believe John was unconscious from the blow before he hit the water

* He was wearing a survival suit with a wetsuit hood and gloves and a lifejacket

* The JON buoy and the horseshoe buoy were thrown off the back of the boat to mark the position

* It took some time to get the boat under control and motor sail back to a position near where the man overboard occurred

* At 1342 (UTC), the team informed Race Control, by email, that there was a man overboard and they were returning to the MOB position to start a search pattern

* With input from the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre and Race Control in Alicante, a search and rescue operation was carried out for several hours but there was no sign of John, the horseshoe buoy, or the JON buoy

* With weather conditions deteriorating, a difficult decision was taken to abandon the search and preserve the safety of the remaining crew
Newton says the team is distraught but has a clear focus on getting the crew and boat back to shore.

“This situation isn’t over yet for our team,” Newton said. “The conditions are extremely challenging, with strong winds and a forecast for a building sea state over the next couple of days. Our sole focus, with the assistance of Race Control in Alicante is to get the team into port safely.

“Once we have achieved that, we have time to de-brief more fully and ensure that any lessons that can be learned from what happened to John are incorporated by the rest of the fleet going forward.

“That would be a tremendous legacy for John, who spent so much of his time passing the learnings from his lifetime of experience at sea onto the younger sailors on our team.”

An update on Team Sun Hung Kai/Scallywag crew member John Fisher, from Richard Brisius, the President of the Volvo Ocean Race:

This morning I am extremely sad to inform you that one of our sailors, John Fisher, from Team Sun Hung Kai/Scallywag, is now presumed to have been lost at sea.

This is heart-breaking for all of us. As sailors and race organisers losing a crew member at sea is a tragedy we don't ever want to contemplate. We are devastated and our thoughts are with John's family, friends and teammates.

Yesterday, just after 1300 UTC, Race Control for the Volvo Ocean Race were informed of a man overboard situation by Team Sun Hung Kai/Scallywag.

We immediately coordinated with the team as well as the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre, who have located a ship and diverted it towards the scene. But at current speeds it remains over a day away.

With the rest of the Volvo Ocean Race fleet approximately 200 miles downwind, sending them back upwind to assist, against gale to storm force winds, was not a viable option.

The Sun Hung Kai/Scallywag team conducted an exhaustive search for several hours in extremely challenging weather conditions, but they were unable to recover their teammate.

Given the cold water temperature and the extreme sea state, along with the time that has now passed since he went overboard, we must now presume that John has been lost at sea.

All of us here at the Volvo Ocean Race organisation send our heartfelt condolences out to John's family, his friends and his teammates and we will do everything in our power to support them in this very difficult time.

Team Sun Hung Kai/Scallywag has now resumed heading in a north-easterly direction.

In fact, the team is currently in a challenging position – the weather is deteriorating and is forecast to be quite severe over the course of today.

The crew is, of course, emotionally and physically drained after what they have just experienced.

Our sole focus now is to provide all the support and assistance that we can to the team.

We are sure that there will be many questions about how one of our sailors was lost overboard yesterday.

We can address those after the team has been fully debriefed.

Today, our thoughts and prayers go out to John's family and the entire Scallywag team.
