The whole of the SAFRAN team is behind Armel Le Cléac'h and Brit'Air and hopes to see them back in the water soon.
While sailing in fifth place, Armel Le Cléac'h's Brit'Air lost her wing mast. At 12h30, Armel Le Cléac'h contacted his technical team and his sponsor to inform them of the damage. The incident happened a little before noon, while Brit'Air was sailing with staysail and one reef at around 9° Latitude North. The Breton skipper was not hurt in the incident. Further information is expected in the coming hours.
