Didac Costa back in Les Sables d' Olonne / Vendée Globe
At 1254hrs UTC Didac Costa decided to turn back. The Spanish skipper identified an ingress of water and an electrical problem aboard his IMOCA One Planet One ocean.
He is currently being escorted by a French lifeboat service boat. His team will be able to go aboard once he has passed north of the Nouch Buoy at around 1435hrs UTC. A closer analysis will then be possible. He is expected to enter the harbor after 1600hrs UTC.
