It was Olmix/Gamin 50 trimaran [Theoriginal Crepes Wahoo]. She's back in France now

Enough float in the lee ama to prevent capsize but sprit support cable hanging loose suggesting lee ama bow gone.

Lee rigging mentioned so beams are there. Looks like major impact/failure of lee ama.

A picture of the recovered boat would be nice so we can learn a lesson.

That boat has done a lot of miles, arguably one of the more successful multi 50s, though a different concept to the current generation - a bit like the Classe 40s evolution.
