01-12-2014 10:00:00


The first Danish boat in the world's toughest ocean race ever - Team Vestas Wind - has been discontinued after the boat hit a reef in Mauritius on Saturday afternoon. All crew members were rescued.

The ship, which has the Australian veteran Chris Nicholson as captain, has a nine-man crew - including two Danish sailors.

In the video below you can hear Chris Nicholson talk about the dramatic incident that ended with the crew having to abandon ship.

The crew is now safe on a nearby island, while there will be later made an attempt to salvage the wrecked boat.
