After the capsize of the Maxi Banque Populaire IX last night at Morocco coast, the crew was helped by the Moroccan army. Armel Le Cléac’h, Pierre Emmanuel Hérissé and the cameraman arrived to Casablanca where they were taken care of by the Consulate of France. Armel, joined by his team on shore in the late afternoon, tells of his capsize. A race against time is now engaged to recover the boat as soon as possible and make every effort to be at the start of the Route du Rhum next November…XS Sailing
