Following the damage to the mainsail which he suffered yesterday morning onboard the IMOCA DMG MORI Global One, Kojiro SHIRAISHI successfully lowered the mainsail this morning at 8:45 UTC.

Discussions are currently taking place between Kojiro, his technical team and the sailmaker to precisely assess the situation and to define a repair process taking into account the equipment available onboard.

Kojiro is determined to try everything to repair. He will benefit from good weather conditions allowing him to take the time needed to achieve and validate the repairs.
