Fright For Robin Marais

Published on 07/09/2020

French skipper Robin Marais got a fright this morning after falling asleep and runnng his Ma Chance Moi Aussi aground near Start Point at 11:40 am French time this morning. Fortunately he managed to get off almost immediately using the engine of his Figaro Bénéteau 3 and was able to carry on sailing eastwards, under the supervision of Kriter VIII, one of the three guard boats of La Solitaire du Figaro, and the local Coast Guard. The skipper is fine, the keel does not appear damaged, there is some delamination in a few places and so he is heading directly towards Dunkirk and is out of the stage
