We have lost the main mast when the lower spreaders failed this evening. Everyone is ok and we have informed the rlelevant authorities.
We are en-route to Barbados under engine power. The failed shrouds had been inspected no less than three times before we left on the ARC so are mystified as to why they have failed just now.
We will update as soon as we have more information.
I repeat that everyone is on and we are proceeding at 4knots towards Bridgetown - we will try and see what can happen in terms of repairs in the next day or so.
Regards to all
