167/ and this is supposed to mean what, that you don't agree with what I have said?

The Solo French solo offshore championship regards only the Figaro class, leaves outside the 40class solo championship that is the logical next step before Open 60.

The Figaro offshore solo championship is a coastal offshore championship that only in 2013 included a Transat.

As you can see in 2012 LAGRAVIERE won it based on regularity.

and you can see also on last year solo offshore championship he had not made better that 12th.

Morgan Lagravičre never won any Transat contrary to several that in my opinion have a far better curriculum and were a more logical choice for a top Open60 to race the next vendee globe. Here you have some:

Fabien Delahaye

Palmarčs - Fabien Delahaye | Macif Course au large

Erwan Tabarly

That was second on the 2012 French solo offshore championship and has already won a Transat in Figaro and been 2nd and 3rd on another two:

Sébastien Rogues:

Sebastien Rogues | The skipper

Thomas Ruyant

Face to these sailors, all relatively young, the curriculum of Morgan Lagravičre is not a big one:

Morgan Lagravičre - Safran Sailing Team

I am not saying that he is not the best choice, just that it not seems the more logical one.
