Bernard Stamm (Cheminées Poujoulat) is appealing his disqualification from the Vendée Globe 2012 race - Bernard Bonneau (President of the International Jury) today on Vendée Globe LIVE said,
“We received an email yesterday from Bernard asking us to reopen his case. In this email, Bernard wants to have the Professor Khromov Captain’s testimony. We respect this and we will wait for this testimony. There won’t be any decision made today because it’s too complicated to contact every jury member.”
Until the information has been reviewed and a final verdict has been delivered the race office will continue to include Bernard Stamm’s positions and ranking in the four hourly reports. The jury is still out as the final outcome is awaited.
