The motor Yacht Tigre d'Or again suffered an accident. In rough sea in the Biscaya, the gangway door at the stern sprang open.
The incoming water mixed with fuel for the jet-skis, and an explosion followed. The pumps were not able to fight the incoming water so that the rudder went out of order.
A new pump was brought by a helicopter, but this pump was out of order !!! Anyway, the helicopter flew the four female crew members and the slightly injured engineer off the yacht.
Altogether, it took another two and a half days, until a towboat was able to take her to Brest.
