CAMPER with Emirates Team New Zealand Non-Skid Respray

The wear and tear on the nonskid of a Volvo 70 is pretty harsh. The crew require the best possible grip and typically the decks get the nonskid redone after 1/2 the race has been completed and was originally scheduled for the Auckland stopover in March. However Camper had sailed considerably more miles pre-race than expected so December 2011 saw TOG princple Dale Pennington travel to Cape Town South Africa to re-spray the nonskid on Camper. 4 days to prep and respray outside in the Cape Town spring was certainly challenging and meant for some very late nights.
