Team Malizia halyard

Meet the Ocean Race’s Toughest Halyard

A year ago today Team Malizia endured significant damage to their mast and sails and a race against the clock to make repairs and continue racing during Leg 3 of the The Ocean Race.  

The strength of the now infamous Code Zero 8mm Dyneema Halyard tore a 26cm hole into the carbon mast after the sail fell when a metal fixing broke away.

Thankfully the damage did not deter; and the skill, determination and talent of the team had them safely and securely racing towards victory to cross the finish line first in Itajai, Brazil.

A hard won, awe-inspiring win for the team, and one of the many reasons why we are proud to rig Team Malizia.
