• More Troubles For Vestas

    After weighing their options, the Vests' team decided to load up and motor from Port Stanley to Itajai, and departed
    yesterday. They now have turned back after other issues sprang up....

    "After leaving the Falkland Islands we had a mechanical issue and needed to return to port to further assess and make necessary repairs. Given the long journey ahead, it is key that our VO65 is technically sound before making its way to Itajaķ. More updates to follow."

    Port Stanley to Itajai=1,700 nm

    Or 7 days at seas at 10 knots...
