Spindrift: capsize in Dublin bay…

Spindrift: capsize in Dublin bay…

La route des Princes is one of the rare events this year for the Mod 70s, hence the importance of a good result. On arriving in Dublin bay, Spindrift was at the head of the fleet.

Delighted with this stage win, during the inshore races, the crew wanted to show that they were a force to be reckoned with. But Dun Laoghaire bay was particularly windy, with gusts of 32 knots on the Saturday, and at the start, Spindrift capsized... Jacques Guichard, Yann’s brother, the Mod 70’s skipper, was injured and was evacuated to Dublin hospital with fractured pelvis.
Don’t forget to visit the Multihulls World web site to see the video of the capsize. It is really impressive!
