Jules Verne Trophy

Orange have had some damage to repair on board. Apparently the aft beam had begun to delaminate, and on board repairs were carried out.
It is all repaired now though, and Orange are building back up to full power. They will have to be a little careful and keep an eye on the area repaired, and perhaps hold off on the speed a little until the confident in the repair.

From Bruce Peyron's log book:

We build up power ... gently. The Indian Ocean? It's behind us now. The foot on the brakes? That's also behind us.
