    Mellow Yellow...

    Not sure about the yellow boat, but the green boat in the background is Xplore, an old BT Global Challenge 67' up for sale at Berthon's!

    Thanks mate. Saved the day. BT switched the AC to BT Sport 2 which you have to pay extra for. Awesome race.

    Team NZ

    It was after the end of Race 7, BT Sport going thru the re-run at 40:25. When you go back and look at Blair Tuke, he is hardly cycling at all, but is head down, with his finger on a control.

    Worth emphasising that the deck is the most difficult complex and longest time to build individual component. They only had to replace about the last metre of the deck. The rest was fine. The shame was they couldn't recover the mast and keel. Keel fin and mast were both deliberately destroyed during the recovery effort. Pretty much everything else on the boat was salvaged and reused. Which is a lot of pretty expensive gear. The new hull included a huge amount of newly built internal components - like new keel box, bulkheads and the like. Structurally there is a lot of new boat. Thanks for clearing that up. Though never saw any footage of them dropping the rig on the reef.

    I thought that the Vestas was a new build. From the reports I saw, In the end they threw away the wreck as beyond repair and built a new boat? So not a Frankenboat.
