Cheminées Poujoulat came into the bay of Morbihan in 40 to 45 knots of wind on Sunday night. Despite all the help awaiting his arrival, Bernard Stamm was unable to get onto the mooring that had been set up for him, even though he used the engine and had the help of a RIB and Dominique Wavre.
The situation rapidly worsened and the IMOCA 60 was driven ashore. The skipper was rescued and is safe and well, but the bad weather and the fact that it was night prevent further operations.
