Spotted yesterday in Khasab, Oman are the last mortal remains of the once-awesome ORMA 60 trimaran ‘Brossard.’  A 24-hour record holder (610 NM way back in 2006) in her day, the sistership to FujiFilm and Banque Pop IV, the story of her wreck and subsequent abandonment isn’t a pretty one, though it can’t be much uglier than the state that the beautiful boat has been left in.  You can read one speculator’s comments about Brossard’s demise here and see some more brutal pics of the boat a year ago here

And if the news depresses you, have a look at all the ORMA 60s in their natural state here on the historic Voiles-Multicoques field guide to the ORMA 60.
