Green Dragon hits a set back...

Dave Kneale/Volvo Ocean Race
Green Dragon's preparations for the second leg race to Cochin, India were dealt a blow today when they broke a spreader during a practice sail in CapeTown. The team were sailing upwind in 30 knots when the J4 lock strop broke and caused the head swivel on the sail to break away and come down, damaging the tip of the third starboard spreader in the process.
