Mar Mostro, a Puma vessel, lost her rig early last week.  Hall Spars & Rigging and Southern Spars have been working with the crew and designer Scott Ferguson to better understand the cause of damage.

The mast used for the Puma vessel was an evolved take on a design that Telefonica used in the last Volvo Race, and had safely traveled tens-of-thousands of miles before loss.  

A spare mast was quickly shipped last week in order to avoid the holiday ban on commercial trucking, and, in coordination with the Puma racing and Mar Mostro shore teams, was slated to arrive in Cape Town in unison.
