Sail-World.com : Volvo Ocean Race: The making of Camper's mast at Southern Spars

Volvo Ocean Race: The making of Camper's mast at Southern Spars

'CAMPER with Emirates Team New Zealand. Auckland to Fiji race.'    Emirates Team New Zealand    Click Here to view large photo

Join Camper skipper, Chris Nicholson, as he takes us behind the doors of Southern Spars new factory and shows a mast under construction for the Volvo Ocean racer to be sailed by Emirates Team New Zealand.

This is a rare look at just how these spars are made - and gives us a look at the impeccable interior of the state of the art Southern Spars facility. And then there's a reminder of what is like aboard a Volvo Ocean racer - fast, wet and furious.
