Pit Stop in Fernando de Noronha

By AlithiaNo Comments

After a tough 15 days slogging it out upwind from Antigua to Fernando de Noronha off the Brazilian coast, Alithia has sustained some damage. The bow thruster doow has been ripped off and we have had to get a replacement made in Italy and shipped out so that we can effect a temporary repair before heading off to Cape Town, some 4000 miles away across the Southern Atlantic.

It took two of us repeatedly diving under the bow to remove the old brackets and fix the new door with some locally fabricated brackets in order for us to continue oour journey.
