Transat Racer damaged in collision
The French yachtsman Maxime Sorel competing in The Transat Bakerly Solo Transatlantic Race from Plymouth to New York, was forced to abandon the race on May 3, 2016, after the "V and B" crashed into the Russian cargo m/v Yashma"(IMO-No.: 9555357), which was en route from Figueira da Foz, where it had sailed on Apr 30, to Gavle, ETA May 9. The accident happened around 10 a.m 160 km west of the tip of Penmarc'h . Maxime Sorel was among the leaders in the 10-strong Class40 fleet, as the boats raced downwind in the northern Bay of Biscay about 90 nautical miles west of Lorient. At 11.23 a.m. the CROSS Corsen was notified by the Race Director about the accident. The yacht had suffered damage to the bowsprit, forcing Sorel to head to La Trinité sur Mer. Sorel was safe and uninjured and the boat’s mast was stable. The cargo ship continued its voyage.

Cargo damage during storm ride
The "Spirit of Tasmania" was caught in rough weather on May 3, 2016, enroute from Melbourne to Devonport in the Bass Strait, only hours after the Bureau of Meteorology issued a warning for 100km/h winds across much of Victoria and Tasmania. The waves were smashing the ship and once or twice it tilted heavily, and everything flew off the tables in the rooms. About 10 vehicles on parking deck five shifted, smashed together and were damaged. The owners of the affected vehicles did not disembark the ship until about 11 a.m. after the damage had been assessed and insurance arrangements discussed. A large semi-trailer was turned on its side. Reports with photos and video: www.theage.com.au... www.theage.com.au...
