Le Cam, Less Keel


Le Cam, Less Keel

The Vendee Globe destruction derby continues…

Following Jean Le Cam’s (VM Matériaux) distress call to his shore team this morning at 00h26 GMT the Chilean and French MRCC have been setting up a rescue operation using the resources available in the area. The boat has apparently lost its bulb and is upside down. Latest news is that the tanker Sonangol Kassanje is alongside VM Matériaux but unable to launch a rescue boat due to the sea state. Armel Le Cléac’h (Brit Air) and Vincent Riou (PRB) expect to be on the scene in around four hours, around 15h (GMT).

The amount of carnage in this race is unbelievable. It now seems to be a case of "Who’s Next?"
