Groupe Bel is in a sad shape tonight, and so is my morale.
I will let you know when I reach the Cascais marina.
I have no choice but to officially notify the race direction I am retiring from the 2012-2013 Vendée Globe.
I spent six years preparing for this unique race, which lasted only 28 hours in 2008 and 43 hours in 2012. It is cruel, but that's life...
