Out there are many of the racers sitting on dry land and rottening (as we can see on the warft area in Solac Sur Mer / France)... hope that wont happen to R4WO.
So looked the boat in "good shape"... it is the Multi 50 Trimaran
Officially the HQ says: "The righting of the trimaran
will take place with the help of a crane tomorrow (on 17th) in the military harbor."

All depends on the damages. The rig, eventually a broken mast
might have damaged the boat heavily. Who knows... proably it will become an expensive refitting... quickly 400-500,000 US dollars if they should require a new Carbon rotation wing mast
Let's see.... doesnt make sense to speculate around. Let's hope for the best that this boat isnt lost
