Victor d’Ersu forced to retire from the race
After arriving this morning in the Portuguese port of Cascais two days after colliding with a fishing boat off the coast of Nazaré, Victor d’Ersu (985 – Babouchka) made a full check-up of his boat with representatives of a local boat builder. The structural damage on his Maxi 6.50 are sadly to significative to allow him to continue racing. He therefor informed the Race Direction of his official retirement in this 23rd Mini Transat EuroChef.
