"Death At Sea"

Condor pledges full co-operation on crash

The wavepiercer Condor Vitesse.

CONDOR will continue to co-operate with all official inquiries into the ferry crash which killed a French fisherman, company bosses have said, following the publication of a damning report into the fatal incident.

However, they said that it would be inappropriate to comment further on the collision in March between the fast catamaran Condor Vitesse and Les Marquises, a whelk boat from Granville.
The impact sliced Les Marquises in half, killing instantly its captain, 42-year-old Philippe Lesaulnier. Two other crew members were plucked alive from the water.
BEAmer, a French marine investigation body, released the findings of its inquiry into the crash earlier this week.
