Re: Vendee globe: Rescue of Sanso
He was quite faraway from Açores, at about 500kms, so first they located him with an airplane and then pick him with an helicopter.
Yes, he lost the keel, we can see that on the airplane passage.
It seems we covered the same topic simultaneously, Paulo
This only shows how big a relief this rescue operation is for everyone.
Also J-P Dick is out of trouble now, let's keep our fingers crossed for Mike Golding (also keel problems) and Tanguy De Lamotte (destroyed starboard rudder and port centreboard, taking water).
