Abandoned < 500 miles

This year’s Mini Transat race is BRUTAL!

Yesterday my friend Andrea Iacopini was plucked out of the ocean by “Imaginaire”. Imaginaire is one of the fantastic support boats. Andrea hit a container while sailing (UFO- unidentified floating object), crippling his Mini Transat dreams. He would have been less than 500 nautical miles from the finish line.
He is safe and sound onboard imaginaire.

Here’s the story published by the race.
