At Tristan, we devised, we’d meet a ship that would be dispatched from Durban, South Africa. The ship would have a crane, allowing us to pick up the boat and place it on our cradle, which our shore crew would have put in place. A few members of our shore team would be on the ship, as would a 20-foot container full of tools and equipment. We’d use the four-plus days of transport to Cape Town to put the pieces of Humpty Dumpty back together again. And what about our spare mast? It was sitting at Hall Spars in Bristol, R.I., and had to be expedited by airfreight to Cape Town. When the boat and mast would eventually meet, we’d need a full-team press to get the boat in the water and the rig tuned properly before the in-port race on December 10, and more importantly, the next leg to Abu Dhabi.
