Since the conclusion of the Volvo Ocean Race, the Hong Kong based Team Scallywag have been in the process of putting their show on the road again.

Joining the supermaxi, is the ORMA60 trimaran previously campaigned by Sean Langman - and another round of record setting looks assured around Asia and the Pacific.

The supermaxi Scallywag 100 has been reassembled from storage, refitted and is now sea-trialling in the Phillipines.

The images and video below capture the reassembly process of Scallywag 100, and skipper David Witt's former 18ft skiff competitor Sean Langman describes handing over the reigns of the ORMA60.
