From Sébastien Josse today (Monday, 29.12.08): “Today at around 0500 GMT the wind dropped enough for me to lift the rudder system, and check what the problem was. I quickly discovered that the issue was on the port rudder and understood why the two rudders were not in line anymore.”? The starboard rudder is undamaged, but the port rudder which would have been f! ully exposed to the crashing waves when the boat was upside down is badly damaged.
