Be Water Positive Sailing Team Withdraw from Transat Jacques Vabre

Nov 15, 2023

The Be Water Positive Sailing Team returned to Gosport late on Thursday, November 9th in order to seek further medical advice for Skipper, Scott Shawyer. After consultation with medics and his technical team, they have made the difficult decision to withdraw from racing in the Transat Jacques Vabre. We are assured Scott will make a full recovery.

Scott Shawyer upon returning to the dock had the following to say. “Well, this is disappointing. We have been working so hard to get the boat and ourselves in the best shape and sometimes fate just hands you a bad card. I’m looking forward to regrouping with the team in the coming days and to planning the next stage of our program.”

Hear the latest update from Scott now he has returned to Canada and has had some time to recover.  Click here.
