Damage to port foil system on Vendée Globe leader Charlie Dalin's Apivia
Leader of the Vendée Globe since 23rd November, Charlie Dalin has this evening reported damage to his port foil system.
While sailing in the southern Indian Ocean some 900 miles south west of Tasmania at around 1800hrs UTC and leading the fleet by some 65 miles, Dalin heard a loud noise and immediately slowed the boat to assess the situation, discovering damage to his port foil system. Dalin called his technical team immediately. On first inspection, the APIVIA skipper noticed that the port foil system was damaged. He did not report any water ingress.
He and his team are reviewing the level of damage and repair options.
