Multi 50 skipper Pierre Antoine Airlifted off Olmix After Lightning Damage

After reporting at around 1030hrs this morning that his Multi50 Olmix had been struck by lightning and was leaking badly in the central hull, the MRCC and Race Direction of la Route du Rhum-Destination Guadeloupe took appropriate action. The solo skipper Pierre Antoine was safely airlifted off his boat just after 1300hrs (CET) this afternoon. His previously  reported position was around 100 miles north of Cape Finisterre.
Class 40 Race Leader Sebastien Rogue was diverted to the zone and is reported to have been standing by until the safe rescue was effected by a Spanish helicopter, as coordinated by CROSS Griz Nez and MRCC Madrid along with Race Direction of La Route du Rhum-Destination Guadeloupe.
