This will be very rough for them. I mean, they should have a spare wand, no? Unless it's the cable that fried, or the topline bus, or one of the electronic components.Biotherm lost all wind instruments and the computer during their gybe around Cape Horn;
"This was a spectacular rounding of Cape Horn because there was so much snow... It was absolutely beautiful. Huge snow squalls coming through," said Sam Davies on Biotherm.
"It's a great goal post to get through but as we gybed close to Cape Horn we lost all of our wind instruments and the computer. At the same time there was that massive snow squall so we didn't have a lot of time to celebrate..."
The team is going old school with the electronics damage, tying 'woolies' on the shrouds to show the wind angle.
