The truth of the night: Damien Seguin dismassed in the Bay of Biscay

Last night, around 3:30 in the morning, a cargo crashed into Groupe Apicil, Damien Seguin’s Imoca. This shock led to the wreck of the boat. The captain is fine and unhurt. He tries to free the mast and does not ask for help. He was 250 miles from Les Sables-d’Olonne when the shock occurred. [Notre article]
