• Banque Populaire Capsizes



    The Maxi Banque Populaire IX capsized that night around 3am while sailing off the coast of Morocco.

    The crew composed of Armel Le Cléac'h and Pierre-Emmanuel Hérissé accompanied by a cameraman, is safe inside the boat. They were able to trigger the distress and contact the technical team ashore. A boat is already on its way to join the trimaran and its crew in the next hours.

    Leaving Lorient Tuesday, the boat took the road to the Mediterranean to compete in a few days Nice UltiMed.
