Vendee Globe: Kevin Escoffier rescued by rival after yacht folds in two during World Cup

Both men competed in the list Vendée Globe, A solo race of 24,296 miles, when Escoffier ran into trouble.

Escoffier, 40, said he was forced to abandon his boat after a “double-decker” wave on the Cape of Good Hope, South Africa, on Monday.

“Do you see the picture of the boat sinking? It was like that, but worse. When four seconds of the boat came to a stop, the bow folded at 90 degrees,” he said. Said.

“I put my head in the cockpit. The wave was about to happen. I had time to send a message once before the wave was electrified. It was crazy.”

The organizers responded by hiding Le Cam on a rescue mission, with the Frenchman the closest rival.

The 61-year-old initially made eye and voice contact with his compatriots, but it took a lot of effort to successfully rescue Escoffier early Tuesday, amid strong winds and waves.

“I told myself I would be in a waiting position and waiting in the daytime. Then I thought in the dark it might be easier to see his light,” Le Cam said. Said.

“Halfway through when I was in the boat I saw an electric current, but in reality it was a reflection that made waves.

“But the closer I get to the light, the more I see it. It’s amazing because you turn from despair into unrealistic moments right away.”

Le Cam himself assisted in the race in 2009 after spending 16 hours sailing his boat, and Escoffier said he was not intimidated as soon as he saw his rival in the distance.

“As soon as I saw China, I was sure I would survive,” he said.
