We are now in Mindelo on Saao Vincente. So far we managed to get the rudder dismounted. The operation was more smooth then I had expected, given that we had a bit of trouble putting it in place.

It was a little surprising that the rudder floats!

As you can see, whatever it was that we hit was pretty heavy and caused a lot of damage to the plastic. However the aluminium structure is undamaged, which means we can at least put together a temporary fix that will take us to Capetown.

  1. Ser ut som att det är skumgummi inuti… Jesper, kan du inte lägga upp lite bilder på människorna som reparerar rodret också…? Kram till alla!
