Swift preparation progress for the GOR teams in Wellington

The Wellington stopover of the Global Ocean Race (GOR) marks the halfway point for the fleet of Class40s in the 33,000 mile, double-handed circumnavigation. With 15,000 miles and a total of between 65-78 days of racing completed in Legs 1 and 2, the next 18 days in New Zealand is a vital repair and preparation period for the 6,200-mile Leg 3 through the Pacific Ocean and around Cape Horn to Punta del Este, Uruguay.

Fortunately, the 7,500 miles sailed through the high-latitudes of the Indian Ocean, including a succession of frontal systems sweeping eastwards through the fleet delivering wind speeds up to 60 knots, have left all the boats structurally intact with very limited damage. Indeed, the majority of work being undertaken in Wellington is general maintenance. Three boats have pulled their rigs and the carbon masts of Cessna Citation, BSL and Phesheya-Racing are being checked by Duffy Yacht and Rigging at Chaffers Marina.
