At the time, Alex was located approximately 800 miles east of Rio de Janeiro in the South Atlantic ocean, and was 13 days into the Vendée Globe round-the-world yacht race. Alex and the team, together with our appointed naval architects and structural engineers, are now working together to assess the extent of the structural issue and to determine a repair programme and timeline. Alex is safe and well onboard, and in regular dialogue with the team. The Vendée Globe race organisation has been notified and is being kept well informed. We kindly ask that members of the public refrain from attempting to contact the team at this time. A further update will be released on Sunday 22nd November. Uh oh...

    If, hypothetically, I wrote a script that used you marine traffic premium subscription to take a screenshot of the Vendée fleet and put it online every 30 mins, would that be acceptable?

    Na, 360 camera and then rotated after the fact, or something like dji osmo with a remote control on a nearby tender. No way you'd be able to choreograph this.

    Find a boat game: Fastnet on a budget

    https://yachts.apolloduck.co.uk/boat/whitbread-30/590115 raced against May Contain Nuts for a few years. Great little boat, they've completed many fastnets crewed and singlehanded

    What you build vs what you get. 3d model isnt going to account for surface finish, shrinkage or that extra .5mm of layup around the bottom of the pole
