AC35: Overnight repair? Update – LRBAR expected to race today

Sunday, May 28, 2017

PHOTOS OF THE BIG HOLE in the bottom of the port hull of Land Rover BAR, following what we called Ben's Big Bang, or should it be Big Ben's Bang, in the GBR-JPN race yesterday. SI's Lifestyle reporter on the scene in BDA, Stacie Brandt, said the "crowd roared when Ainslie's cat mounted Barker's...."  You think this an overnight repair? And after watching the videos again this morning, if there is no damage to the dagger foil case, etc., of Dean's boat, and the grinding pedestals, I will be more than a bit surprised. Needless to say all of us at SI, and no doubt across the sailing world, are relieved that no one was injured.

 

More photos of the repair work that went on through the night at the Land Rover BAR base via the SailWeb.co.uk website here. And we are hearing from a senior member of LRBAR that they do expect to be able to race today.
