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.”
