2 April 2023, it had been less than 24 hours and the news hadn’t fully sunk in in our minds just yet: Our team won Leg 3 of The Ocean Race, and we turned our Southern Ocean dream into reality. Whilst the communication team pulled an all-nighter to share the news and amazing photos and videos of the arrival, the technical team went back to the team house to get a few precious hours of sleep before a busy day ahead. Once back at the base, they emptied and cleaned the boat, and started the dismasting procedure. They then lifted our beloved Malizia - Seaexplorer out of the water and on her high cradle, marking the first steps in a two-week long refit period.
