Stamm was disqualified on January 2, 2013, after receiving uncalled for assistance after his generator packed up but was later allowed to race on following a successful appeal to the race jury. Le Cam finished fifth of the event as Riou abandoned on November 24, 2012 after his hull was damaged by a metallic buoy.
