Wow, thanks for the quick reply EM, he was a lucky boy that Jean was such a good competitor, I can't even start to imagine what Kevin was thinking as his boat foundered. An interesting set of rescue protocols, thanks for the information.Jean Le Cam picked up Kevin Escoffier and continued his course stopping only to rendezvous with a French Frigate. Kevin did not assist but was a passenger.
The ship took Kevin aboard and compensated Jean with some food to replace that which was consumed by Kevin. All four sailors who took part in the rescue mission as requested by the Race Director were given time compensation. Jean Le Cam had 18 hours which took him from finishing 8th to 4th place. Yannick Bestaven was the sailor whose time compensation led to his win over the first over the line, Charlie Dalin.
