All washed up

Yachting World - - On The Wind -

A large por­tion of the star­board bow sec­tion of Seb Josse’s maxi foil­ing tri­maran Ed­mond de Roth­schild was found in De­cem­ber on a beach in Corn­wall. Around 10m of the hull sec­tion broke away dur­ing the sec­ond night of the Route du Rhum solo race in Novem­ber. Josse re­ported com­ing to a vi­o­lent halt while sail­ing in 30 knots of wind and 3.5m seas in the Bay of Bis­cay.

He was 135 miles north-west of La Coruña at the time, so the de­bris trav­elled 375 miles north-east be­fore it washed up on Gun­wal­loe cove on the west coast of the Lizard penin­sula.
