Very nice movie about the 8th leg of the race:

Cammas and his team are no longer the rookies of this race, but the probable winners. And with this victory Cammas joins the legendary French sailors and has deserved a place side by side with Tabarly.

What impresses me most, beside the very different sailing categories and type of boats in which he excels is that he is so young to have won so much.

When he skippers a crew, on the Volvo, or in the Jules Verne Trophy, he is always one of the younger guys. That is not natural, the captain is normally among the older and more experienced.

Believe it or not, he opted for sailing as a career leaving behind is other passion, music: He is also a classical piano player.

Cheers to him. He was my unconditional admiration
