Bourgnon’s crash on the coast of Sri Lanka. Swiss man falls and tries to get back up

bourgnonDo you see this pile of fiberglass? It is none other than the 6.20 m uninhabitable catamaran with which Swiss Yvan Bourgnon had launched himself on October 5, 2013, on a solo round-the-world voyage from Les Sables d’Olonne (Brittany). Unfortunately, just a few miles from the conclusion of her voyage, the catamaran came to a bad end in Sri Lanka in early August.
