For the Transat Jacques Vabre, at 2158hrs UTC ( 2258hrs French time) this Sunday evening direction double handed race from Le Havre to Itajai, Brazil received a call from Yann Elies the co-skipper of nearby FenêtréA Cardinal (0.5 miles away) to inform them that the Multi 50 trimaran Arkema - Aquitaine had capsized.

At 2204hrs UTC (2304hrs French) Arkema – Aquitaine’s co-skipper Mayeul Riffet also contacted the race director by Iridium phone to inform them that all was well aboard the capsized trimaran

The two French skippers, Lalou Roucayrol and Mayeul Riffet, are safe. The boat is 210 miles to the west of Cascais, Portugal

Equipped with survival suits, the pair of sailors are dry inside the trimaran and are working on how organize their rescue. Just now the sailors do not plan to leave the boat. They have activated their Argos beacon so their position and trajectory can be accurately tracked. Weather conditions in the area make organising a tow a consideration.

More information will be sent out following a radio call to the boat at 0515hrs French time when we will try to connect with Lalou Roucayrol and Mayeul Riffet .
