Oh no! Spindrift 2 Abandoned Jules Verne Trophy Attempt Again

Yann Guichard, Spindrift 2’s skipper, made the decision to turn around and end the current Jules Verne Trophy record attempt.
A difficult decision following a sudden loss of control, which required the intervention of two sailors at the wheel to recover the situation.

This malfunction has damaged the steering system which makes the boat unsafe to be sailed in heavy weather conditions. All the crew members are safe and sound. Nevertheless, the multihull’s condition does not allow it to continue its world record attempt. The trimaran is currently returning to la Trinité-sur-Mer in Brittany, France.
