At 00:50hrs UTC this morning, Monday, Race Direction received a call from Juan Merediz and Fran Palacio on Central Lechera Asturiana to say that they have damage to a structural ring frame around the engine box and have turned back to head probably for Auckland.
The duo were in 30 knots of wind at around 45deg07S 158 deg W and had just passed the W Pacific ice gate. The duo have substantially reduced sail sailing and have just over 1000 miles to sail to Auckland.
