Flash Info - Damage to rudder
  • Maxi Spindrift 2
February 1, 2019

At 1606h UTC Yann Guichard, skipper of Spindrift 2, contacted his technical team ashore to report damage to the starboard rudder. Spindrift racing is challenging for the Jules Verne Trophy.  It is currently night for the crew of Spindrift 2, which has hampered their assessment of the situation. The boat is currently in the Indian Ocean, sailing at 15 knots and some 1200 miles off Cape Leeuwin.

Further information will be available when possible.
