BritAir docks and ready for inspection, a decision will be taken this evening.
At around 1330hrs this afternoon (local time) Armel Le Cléac’h and Nicolas Troussel brought BritAir alongside in Concarneau.
The technical team will carry out a full inspection of the boat, preparing an inventory of jobs to be completed and asses how long it will take to complete them.

Le Cléac’h and Troussel will work on the weather analysis to see what their options are, given the that the weather forecasts promise very bad weather for Brittany, possibly making the Bay of Biscay impracticable.
A further decision will be taken this evening.
