Currently second in the brand new Transat Cap Martinique, the first edition of which allows enlightened amateurs to connect La-Trinité-sur-Mer and Fort-de-France, Jean-Pierre Kelbert (SNSM Morbihan) experienced a strange misadventure in the approach to the arrival scheduled for the leader Alexandre Ozon (Trophée Estuaire Rose) in the night from Friday to Saturday.

Jean-Pierre Kelbert, well known to sailing specialists as boss of the JPK shipyard, had a strange encounter in the heart of the ocean.

While he found his boat slowed down and was looking for the cause, the Morbihannais saw a large squid clinging to its keel...

bulky passenger

I see his eye throbbing and his body encompassing half of the keel.

Balls !

said the sailor who had trouble getting rid of this stowaway.

I try knotted rope 10 times, I put myself in the pile under spinnaker to make the boat skid, nothing.

I lower the glitch, push the bar and reverse and… miracle!

The bug lets go and I see it coming out behind.

Freed from its cumbersome passenger, his boat was able to resume the race at normal speed.
