Hard times on Caterham Challenge, back to speed.

After a great day two days ago pushing out to the west and the fastest boat in the Class 40 fleet double disaster struck us on Caterham Challenge. Gybing onto port tack to head directly to the doldrums we suffered a huge rip practically the whole way across the mainsail two thirds of the way. We lowered the main and set off with just the A5 up and were still making 12-14kts. we were just evaluating if we could repair the main at sea or head for port when the tack line failed on the A5 and we had a big wipeout.
