Yes, in Saint Tropez you can find the true spirit of sailing and we can see that great sailboats are forever. The old ones even if slower do it in style...and not that slow

Some more videos that I think you will appreciate from the last solo race in Benetau Figaro II. The images are from the in-port regattas and I find them incredible. They show how good those sailors are.

One thing is to take solo a boat on the Ocean other is sailing it trough a traditional regatta with more than a dozen of other boats very close: They are all one man band and they play quite well even if compared with a full band very impressive.


Grand Prix du Languedoc Roussillon - 1ère journée por generalisolo







The Generali solo was won by Adrien Hardy with the great Gildas Morvan in second. That was enough for Morvan to won (for the 4th time) the French elite solo championship.

Andrien Hardi is one of the young (29) solo French sailors on the rise.
