Bad News: Spindrift 2 Forced​ to Abandon Record Attempt

Bad news for Spindrift 2: yesterday, February 1, the skipper Yann Guichard contacted his technical team ashore to report damage to the structure of the starboard rudder. Spindrift racing is challenging for the Jules Verne Trophy. 

Having made a full assessment of the damage and possible repairs, the team has reluctantly concluded that they are unable to make the necessary repairs without compromising the safety and performance of the 40m trimaran. 

Because of this technical problem we have no choice but to stop this record attempt.  It is a huge disappointment to all of the crew. We are now heading to the southeast coast of Australia and expect to reach there in the next four days,” confirmed Yann Guichard.
