wow. anybody know how they power the foil control? and all the rest, come to that. one guy doing a bit of cursory grinding occasionally isn't going to get you very far i shouldn't think.

Banque Populaire was capsized of Morocco in April so was a fantastic effort just to make the start of the Route du Rhum.

The IMOCA's are not hanging around either averaging 17-19 knots. Alex Thomson gone on abit of a Flyer by the looks.

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

Alex Thomson looking better all the time. The IMOCA60's are doing about the same as the multi50's pretty impressive.
