#Solitaire race leader Mor Bic dismasted by the Wolf Rock lighthouse

After leaving Deauville in France yesterday the AIS tracking picks up competitors in the 45th #Solitaire du Figaro single-handed yacht race as they head back to Plymouth via Roscoff after rounding the Wolf lighthouse at midday today - apart from the Mor Bic...

not the best place to lose your main mast! 

The Mor Bic, skippered by Yan Elies was dismasted just after she rounded the Wolf Rock in 20 knots of sou'westerly wind while in the lead - now he will have an uncomfortable ride back to Falmouth from out there.
