Despite the Transat Jacques Vabres’ best efforts to scrub the Oman Sail Classe 40 entry from their website and the boat itself from the docks, multiple French news outlets reported this morning that co-skipper Fahad Al Hasani was in a Le Havre jail cell after being arrested for an alleged sexual assault on a French woman last night.
Suffice to say this explosive scandal has the potential to put a dagger in the heart of the Oman Sail program that’s already been reeling after last year’s loss of sailor Mohammad Al Alawi.
One source characterized the situation as a ‘misunderstanding’, so let’s hope the authorities get to the bottom of it rapidly and justice is served.
Chatter in the TJV thread.
