Salthouse team in a race against time

So it was one of those late night calls that you just know is going to tell you something is up. And sure enough it’s been all on since then...Team Sanya’s entry into the Volvo Ocean Race had an issue with the bow section on the boat early into the first leg of the race from Alicante to Cape Town and it needed attention, and fast. The following few days at the yard where spent at an accelerated pace sorting possible scenario's and options for a team from Salthouse's to go to Cape Town and help repair the damaged hull. Greg and a team of 5 boatbuilders have now arrived in Cape Town, had their first day of fast paced preparation and now have a big job ahead to get the boat ready for the start of the second leg on 11th December.
