I will not post anything for some time to give the guys the opportunity not to miss this.

Not only Mike and Alex are knowledgeable but full of humor. It is fantastic the amount of information you get about top boat design and technology.

On another side, did you recall the excitement of the school boys and girls that are making a tour visit with their teachers (end of last movie)? very early in the morning and they begun their class with a Vendee Globe visit: How coll is that?

The Vendee Globe site has also a page dedicated to kids. That's a pity that it has no translation to English.
