Telefonica Blue under repair, hopes to sail on Wednesday

While the rest of the of the Volvo Ocean Race fleet has already sailed approximately 400 of the 525 miles that separate Marstrand from Stockholm, a shore crew of 20 people are working relentlessly on repairing the damage Telefonica Blue suffered after hitting a rock in yesterday's race. The aim of the Spanish team is to be able to finish by Wednesday and then set sail for Stockholm, hoping to pocket the points of leg 9 and take part in the in-port race.
