Team Philips has returned from sea trials this morning.

by Team Philips on 6 Oct 2000
Having left Dartmouth yesterday Team Philips was sailing in the English Channel when she experienced movement at the base of the port mast.

The crew immediately set about stabilising the situation before carrying out a thorough inspection of the mast.

From this there is concern over movement in the lower bearing on which the 135ft mast sits. It is sufficient for skipper, Pete Goss to postpone sea trials and head for Dartmouth under reduced sail at about 8 knots.

Once a sufficiently large crane has been found the port mast will be removed at Totnes so that an inspection of its base and the bearing can be made. Once this assessment has been made a new programme will be released.
