The Maxi Banque Populaire IX teams will have their work cut out in the coming months to deliver a new boat to Armel Le Cleac'h after the capsizing of the Ultimate last November 6th during the Route du Rhum. The tug carrying the wreckage back to Vigo, Spain, and the news after the first inventory is not good at all.

After drifting for several days undergoing the unleashing of the waves of the Atlantic, the maxi-trimaran arrived in poor condition at the port. "Despite all our efforts, with the storm, the boat is completely dislocated and in this state its reconstruction is impossible. We are all very sad about this outcome when we think of all the people who contributed to this fabulous project. We are hard at work imagining the continuation of this magnificent history with Banque Populaire, "said Ronan Lucas, the team's director. The team did not broadcast a photo but a video broadcast via Facebook by Cristian Sanchez Barreto shows the extent of the damage. The show is distressing.
