Amer Sports Too scheduled to arrive in LiverpoolJan 1, 2003
Amer Sports Too is scheduled to arrive in Liverpool, England, after being transported across the Atlantic. The Volvo 60 and her all-woman crew were forced to retire from Leg 7 of the Volvo Ocean Race after being dismasted.
Skipper Lisa McDonald hopes to have the yacht at the Camper and Nicholson boatyard by May 14, so that a new mast can be stepped.
The delay leaves McDonald and her crew little time to return to La Rochelle, France, before the start of Leg 8, which is scheduled to depart the French port on May 25.
The dismasting was a tragic setback for Amer Sports Too, but McDonald and her crew are upbeat and pleased that they will have the opportunity to finish the race.
