    Cheminées Poujoulat, sailed by Bernard Stamm and Damien Guillou, who was making their delivery trip back from the trans Atlantic race, the Transat Jacques Vabre, triggered their emergency beacon yesterday evening, when 180 miles from Brest, their home port, and off the tip of Cornwall, UK.

    Glad to hear that Bernard and his team mate escaped without harm it sounds like it was a close call.
