On 2 May, at 1540, whilst training off Thorness Bay, Isle of Wight, in 12 knots of wind, Mike Golding’s IMOCA 60, Gamesa, was dismasted following a suspected failure in the furling gear. Mike Golding, and his crew of Graham Tourell (Boat Captain) and Mike Ferguson (Preparateur) were all unhurt in the incident.

The mast has been recovered to the deck, in one piece, and the team are currently returning Gamesa to her berth at Ocean Village, Southampton.

More information will be released as it becomes available.
