    3di is a cuben fiber derivative.

    It was cold at the lighted boat parade.

    I am shocked that there is no appreciation for an inadvertent phallus on this forum.

    Route du Rhum 2018

    From the race website and google translate: Tonight, the Route du Rhum-Destination Guadeloupe Race Direction contacted Alex Thomson to check on the skipper and his boat. Launched at full speed port tack, Hugo Boss hit the cliffs of Guadeloupe around 21:45 (local time). The accident occurred at the north end of Grande Terre, just south of the Grande Vigie lighthouse on La Pointe à Claude. Driven to the coast, Alex Thomson had to break the sails and start his engine to extract his boat from the rocks. He was able to move away from the reefs before re-hoisting to resume his journey. Alex then cut his engine and installed a new lead on the propeller shaft. The skipper was not injured but the damage is significant. The crash box and the bowsprit were damaged, resulting in a waterway, circumscribed by the bulkhead of the front peak. The starboard foil is damaged. According to Alex, the keel and its structure were also affected without being able to establish a more precise diagnosis in the middle of the night. Currently, the boat is sailing at a speed of 7 knots and continues its tour of the island. A SNSM star has been dispatched to the scene and is ready to respond if needed. Approaching the little island 'Head to English', he has about 60 miles to run to the finish line. The Jury was informed by the Race Direction of the accident and will file a protest against Alex Thomson for using his engine during the race.
