Three days ago when the wind and wave conditions were unbelievably rough we went flying off of a wave while trying to get to the race course. We checked everything and FRA 60 seemed to be OK. Now we suspect that the damage from that wave was lurking. The next day we broke a tack strop against the South Africans, then yesterday morning we broke a jib halyard against Victory and as we were getting ready for the race against Luna Rosa we broke the boat. It is now 7am and the design and shore team worked all night and she looks to be ready to go. Two races today. Alinghi and Spain. We just have to win one or the other and we end up 6th. Onwards!
