    Why is this "of course"? What is the history?

    On January 6, 2009, during the 2008-2009 Vendée Globe, Vincent Riou, then the skipper of PRB, rescued Jean Le Cam from his upturned IMOCA 60 which capsized at Cape Horn.

    In this race, JLC, age 61 and a 5 time vet of the Vendee Globe, has been pushing the leaders with his non-foiling YES WE CAM! He's been the sentimental favorite of millions of French since the start..

    These are the conditions JLC effected the rescue of KE off PRB, except it was dark. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROHd...ture=emb_title
