Bad day for Jean-Pierre Dick and Roland Jourdain, they capsized and the VIrbac Paprec MOD 70 has a broken mast. This means probably no Transat Jacques Vabre for them! :(

Also, Jean-Pierre hurt his back, hope it's not too serious.

Wow!  Looked like the boat just popped up off of a wave right when a puff came through -- very unfortunate and hope JPD is OK.

 

Looked like they had time to blow the mainsheet - although scrambling "downhill" to get to the winch might have been a trick.

You can watch JP take a tumble right at the 40 second mark - that's a long way to the water ... he certainly doesn't seem to have an auto inflating PFD or really, any PDF for that matter.

 

What's really scary is that once the boat is fully turtled, the trampoline looks to be a good foot or more underwater. If you were clipped in, disoriented and wearing foulies and/or an auto-inflate PFD, sure looks like it would be game over.

If those crazy loner French Vendee Globe sailors can't get it right what hope do us mere mortals have..? Reckon it could be time for a fail safe mainsheet system cos when you get it wrong it becomes dangerous and costly, as we all know.

Don't think they have any crew left onboard who know how to work the forum - hence the search being permanently fucked.

If im right , after the route du rhum 2002 , orma 60 had to implement a system that would release the sails if the boats heeled too much.

 

why is that system not on a MOD 70 is baffling.

Don't think it was ever implemented across the whole due to budgets or even if it was a fully automated system.

the electronic anti capsize system was in the process of being installed, just the wiring left to finish....  Shame it was a day too late.  The boats did not come with this as standard because it is not needed with 6 onboard.

That's not precisely how this system works, but I specifically choose not to merge threads when they are posted in two different forums; instead I actually add a link so that people know there is more info...if I was as smart as you and joined them, I'd accomplish the opposite: removing something from one forum and potentially taking information away from interested eyes. See how it works?

The people in the cabin were journalists, along with some shore team, they were there to get the story not sail the boat.  It was a training sail for Bilou and JP to prepare for the upcoming TJV.

 

The 6 onboard obviously refers to fully crewed sailing.

Can't remember where i saw it, but rumor was the Helo had a primary effect on the flip.

 

  I was amazed after first watching the vid that a globe rounding tri like that could just flip in what appeared

relatively benign conditions.  Then I heard of  the helo involvment (allegedly) and it made much more sense.

 

 anyone else hear the same??

Many anarchy experts here say rota wash was not a factor. JPD doesn't mention it either. I wonder.
