I'm wound up like a clock on this story. For me, Bernard acted in good sailor, he did everything to save his boat and penalizes! To give you a picture, it is as if a man finds himself at the edge of the cliff, he may fall, he is someone who extends his hand and he should answer him: "Well, no, because that's the rule, then you do not hand me the hand" and he falls off the cliff! It makes me despair. If what happened to Bernard is not a case of force majeure so I do not know what it is. I sent an email to the jury this morning because we can not make decisions like that. should realize that in the future we can no longer provide assistance in cases of immediate danger, fear of being disqualified . Should we let our boats go box?

 I sent an email to Bernard to express my solidarity and my friendship. It really is a great misfortune that falls on him. Well of course I know Bernard is a good friend and we lived very intense moments together. I do not doubt for a second that acted as a sailor, and did what he needed to do to his boat. I do not want to make another comment, judge or jury controversy. I just want to say that I am Bernard heart goes out to him.「jan_02_pm0315_http_www.vendeeglobe.org_fr_actualites_breve_8671.pdf」をダウンロード

Hello from the Southern Ocean! It was a quick night on board HUGO BOSS is reflected in the miles I earned on the three front. I'm a little slow this morning through a front, but it should be the last before Cape Horn. According to my calculations I should pass Cape Horn Friday, January 4 to 6am GMT. Unfortunately it will be the middle of the night, which could be dangerous because of icebergs alerts. I'm anxious to get out of the South Seas and the Atlantic back as much as it will be a first for me.

I would also say that the disqualification of Bernard is unfortunate. While I understand the reasons taken into account by the jury, I find them very hard given the enormous efforts he has made to repair its hydros and continue the race. More when we remember what happened to him in 2008, when he lost his boat, he seems to have made arrangements for his safety and that of the boat. I'm really sorry for him.

It does not seem normal to me after what happened to Bernard he is now disqualified. If every skipper should vote and say what he thinks: my vote would continue in that race.

It seems to me that insurance companies should get involved in cases like this. Rules can not put more at risk than our physical material which we are responsible.

I'm sure the insurance companies will not really agree with decisions that involve taking risks by following a rule on competition so extreme.

Bernard is an experienced sailor, and no doubt he did what we all would have done to save the ship. And now, from offices in Paris, they tell him that he is disqualified, it does not seem normal. That sounds totally unfair.

Below is the message to Bernard
"Hola Bernard, I just received an email telling me that you were disqualified from the Vendée Globe. I'm really sorry to hear that after the race fabulous that you were doing. I read the statements and I would have done the same thing as you attempt to save my boat. You must be very disappointed and I do not agree with the committee because in extreme situations, we must be able to to get help. Insurance companies may feel happy that you ais been helped. You made the right choice. Good luck and see you soon! Bubi"

48 hours after the claim of Bernard Stamm following the decision of the jury to disqualify the Swiss skipper (*1) Bernard Bonneau, president of the jury, gives us the latest items in this folder.

Bernard Bonneau live during the Friday, January 4, 2013: "We received yesterday morning before his request to reopen the claim that we have found two days before. Bernard Stamm wants to assert his claim for compensation in a written testimony of the ship's captain that Russia has not yet received. The jury wishes before deciding possess all the elements including the testimony, or at least have the content. It will be a bit complicated to have shot today, we'll wait a little bit. '

"Obviously, we will not wait for years, but it extends a little time. I committed myself - too quickly – over 24 hours to make a decision but since Bernard wishes to make this testimony, we respect his desire and we wait. I doubt we can make a decision in the day as the time to get the document and then contact all my colleagues who are everywhere in Europe, it is difficult. The decision should not be made today.'

The Vendée Globe is an extraordinary event that combines two features: an exceptional human adventure and competition at the highest level, with great skippers and sailors adventure.

If so many spectators watch with interest this event is of course the adventure that live skippers, but especially for the exciting race which is known to be the longest and most demanding of all races sailing.
Or a big competition does not without rules, necessarily strict, no sport has major competitions without strict rules.
The Vendée Globe is built around a concept simple and brilliant: round the world solo, nonstop and unassisted.
This concept is transcribed in the rules, through the Notice of Race.
These rules are simple, strict, and they are the beauty of the race, giving it an exceptional and unique, allowing sailors to express their courage and talent.
Rules are applied by arbitrators, by definition independent, whose role is to enforce those rules, of course without rewriting in the circumstances, but they are.
Competitors have accepted a commitment and know that they apply to themselves and others.
They are entitled to expect, and all those who admire the test, they are implemented.
As for the penalty, whatever it is, it does nothing to taint (when there was no cheating) the value of the one who receives.

Saturday, January 5, 2013, 12:06

Dear friends skippers,

You kindly send me a mail regarding the claim raised by the Race Committee boat against the Cheminées Poujoulat, by which you want the international jury rectify its decision to disqualify Bernard Stamm.
Nobody is better placed to know the dual nature of the Vendée Globe since its inception, both exceptional human adventure sports at the same time qu'épreuve incomparable. As such, I have to watch in my duties as President of the organization to respect the independence of the international arbitration represented by the jury. I also refrained voluntarily comment on his decision.

Jan_05_http__www_imoca_org_fr_new_2The jury is sovereign and independent. Appointed by the French Sailing Federation, the jury is one of the three cornerstones of the race, the Race Committee and the Measurement Committee. Impartiality is the best guarantee of sporting fairness between each competitor.

However, I imagine the disarray of Bernard, whose good faith is absolutely not questioned. He has since seized the opportunity that gives Regulation to request a re-examination of the facts. I hope with all my heart that the elements that produce bring new light to the referees of the race.

Feelings of affection and solidarity that occur in the world today and marine enthusiasts from the Vendée Globe is up to the challenges it faces and the courage he showed, believe me, I am the first affected.

Waiting to see you all in the Vendée, I wish you good luck for the new year.

Bruno Retailleau
President of the SAEM Vendée
