After reporting a problem with his keel ram hydraulics earlier this morning, Swiss skipper Alan Roura has managed to sort the issue. After more than 12 hours of hard work Roura has a working keel system and is back up to race pace. Exhausted after his endeavours the race’s youngest skipper is slowly getting his energy back and accelerating east again.

I don’t want to claim an all out victory right now but I’m happy to have a canting keel which works again,” said Roura early evening, “The system might be a little more hassle than usual, but the main thing is that it works and that I was able to set full sail again and pick up speed. Now I'm going to go and rest because I'm burnt out.
