Orange II will head for London
Having barely had the time to recover from the express Atlantic crossing (4 days 8 hours), the Orange II crew sailed towards the boat's technical base in Lorient in order to carry out the necessary repairs on the port rudder blade (see right picture), damaged during the record. The giant cat will also undergo a quick overall check-up. Orange II probably won't be able to line up for the speed sessions in Douarnenez this week-end, but will promptly take to the sea again…
See you in London
In fact, the mighty ship will set sails on July 22, heading for London, where she will stay the 24th and 25th, moored next to Tower Bridge: her sive prevents her from going under the famous monument!
