Thanks for your concern. I am one of the joint owners of SP and thankfully wasnt on board at the time. Everyone was ok and the SP was towed back to Cherbourg by a fellow HillHead Sailing Club member who was in the vicinity. SP is now in a yard in Cherbourg and they will be making the new rudder from a pattern supplied at modest cost by the Baltic Wharf Boatyard in Devon who had recently made one for a customer. The shaft sheared off within the blade about 4" below the bottom bearing. It is likely that it was the result of impact with something.
