And Down They Fall


Not only has Fonica skipper Michel Desjoyeaux headed back to Les Sables d’Olonne with leaking and electrical problems during the second night of the Vendee Globe, Kito de Pavant’s Groupe Bel, Yannick Bestaven’s Aquarelle.com and now Marc Thiercelin and DCNS have all been dismasted, Hugo Boss is returning with structural damage and Derek Hatfield on Algimouss Spirit of Canada is returning, also with electrical problems. Did anyone anticipate this level of problems? Photo from Thierry Martinez.
