Jean Le Cam was trapped in his upturned sailboat for hours off Cape Horn when fellow Vendee Globe Skipper Vincent Riou rushed to his side, sailing over 300 miles to reach Jean Le Cam. Vincent circled the boat for hours until Le Cam finally emerged from the capsized sailboat and Vincent Riou plucked his friend to safety – bringing him onto his sailboat PRB.

Horray Vincent Riou! A real sailing hero!!!
