At 11:30 Saturday morning, in 20 plus knots and a lumpy Atlantic swell, the 60ft trimaran Foncia capsized off Lorient with Alinghi sailors onboard. Foncia was towed into the harbour upside down to be craned out and assessed for damage.

60ft trimaran Foncia was being used by Alinghi for training off Lorient but capsized and will take two months to repair.
