The whole team was on deck this morning to start the analyzing of existing problems. After making a general assessment of the boat, it is now clear that the race against time is unfavorable. The boat was violently rolled on one side and the rigging suffered. Cracks at the junctions of the spreaders and a beginning of tearing of the pulpit testify to the violence of the shock.
Nevertheless, the structure of the boat is intact.
For safety reasons and obviously the impossibility to reach the North West Passage on time, the ANT ARCTIC LAB project is unfortunately postponed for this year.
