I know, it is the same in Portuguese. That makes that name rather odd to 700 million people. I already explained that to Adrien. Off course he didn't know

As you probably know it is only in writing because phonetically the sounds are different. The French will say "Capadó".

Thanks G.

The link to Picasa does not work at least for me but their site is great. I wonder why they didn't continue their older site?

They have also great movies. I will have a look and I will post the best. For now this two. One that shows the boat and one of the more recent ones : sailing between NZ and Australia.





For the ones that don't saw the first posts about the Fox 10.20: That keel can go up and give the boat a smaller draft.

Regards

Paulo

It looks like you need to sign in and use Google Plus to see all Adrien's albums. My guess CAPADO creative boat they used for a build up stage.

Chile has some of the best if not the best American wines. Portuguese are investing there. I have tried several among them this one:

VIÑA LOS BOLDOS

It is a great wine...and also belonging now to a Portuguese wine company that is modernizing production and trying to improve quality even more.

Back to boats, it seems that the bath tub bow is growing faster than what I would expect. Before it comes to 40class racers, such a well known and reputed NA firm as Reichel/Pugh is proposing a 90ft scow to attempt to beat the Transpac record.

That's the boat:



And there are other proposals on the way. Tison had already proposed this one in 2010 saying it would be 10% faster. I guess he is right:

Vor 70



A French victory but not a deserved one. I feel sorry for Telefonica even if it is good for the race. Now Grupama is closer

Re: Interesting Sailboats

It looks amazingly like a flattened sponge.

All in the eye of the beholder, no doubt, but a far cry from the stunning futurism of L'Hydroptère.
