#VOLVOOCEANRACE – The Discover Ireland backed Team Sany entry in the Volvo Ocean Race has been busy discovering Madagascar over the past few weeks as they awaited new rigging for their stricken yacht that pulled into the port of Talanero for emergency repairs before Christmas. Now it looks like they're getting ready to leave. Fingers crossed. See below photos attached from TEAM SANYA action today in Madagascar. SEE PHOTOS BELOW.
'The day we thought would never come has arrived', said Nick Bice, Team Sanya shore team manager. 'Today after nearly 3 weeks, the rig is going back in. Some of the sailing team arrived today and immediately got to work in preparing the boat to leave once the sea trials are done. The tentative plan is to step the rig today with sea trials planned all day tomorrow and on the Friday if needed. Mast going in now...'
