Vestas 11th Hour Racing arrives in Brazil

Vestas 11th Hour Racing has arrived into Itajaí – here's a look behind the scenes as the blue boat docked in under jury rig following a Leg 7 dismasting.

The blue boat docked into Brazil on Monday having been delivered the 1,500 mile trip by sailor Damian Foxall and members of the team's shore crew – Diego Torrado, Andres Guerra Font, Spencer Loxton and Diego Turell.

Work is now underway to lift the boat out of the water and fit a new Southern Spars mast, which has already been transported to Itajaí.

It's been a big 24 hours in the Boatyard as the team works around the clock in Itajaí to service the fleet.
