Vestas is pleased to inform that the nine-member crew of Team Vestas Wind, led by Skipper Chris Nicholson, has arrived safely in Mauritius, following a 20-hour journey by fishing boat from the tiny islet where they have been since being rescued from the rocks of a small reef on November 30.
Upon arrival in Mauritius, Skipper Chris Nicholson says, “The past four days have been very challenging for all of us, and I am extremely proud of the whole crew’s professionalism, composure, and endurance. It’s clear that human error is responsible for the shipwreck, there’s no avoiding that. And as skipper, I take ultimate responsibility.”
