Bow section in build
In Cape Town the repair work to Team Sanya is now well underway. The male tool/mould is now complete with the first layer of inside carbon skin having been laid up. The heat blanket on the top is to help the curing process. This will be followed by the core and then the outside skin.
Sanya Lan VO70 arrives into Cape Town on 28-29 November, and then the team will cut out the damaged section, bring it to the boatbuild shop so that the new piece can be cut accurately before fitting the new piece to the hull.
Key 'collaborators' who are making sure everything happens on time and on track include Nick Bice, Team Sanya Shore manager; Greg Salthouse, chief repair Boat Builder and Uwe Jespersen, owner of the Jaz Marine boatyard where the work is taking place.
