I hope you make a movie of that and good winds for those sea tests. Post the photos or movies when you have them.

Sydney-Hobart 1998

A great movie about the 1998 Sydney-Hobart, one of the toughest editions:

Interesting Sailboats

And some of the most fantastic sail images ever taken: Larry Ellison's Sayonara on that race going at full blast. Amazing how the boat can take that kind of punishment…more than the crew that broke several bones on the process

Vor70

Puma is leading again

Volvo Ocean Race 2011-2012 | Race Data Center

Definitively these light wind conditions seem to suit to them and Camper and not at all to Groupama. Well, too bad for Groupama, they should only get any decent wind after Cabo Branco and that’s two days and half away. Till there I guess Puma and Camper will fight for the lead or at least it will be so if they all take the same tactical decisions in what regards course.

New sailing 24 hour record for a Beach Cat:

Two French sailors in Brasil, coastal sailing between Natal and Fortaleza, 345Nm in 24 hour on a standard Nacra 20.

Yvan Bourgnon and Thibaut Vauchel-Camus are the two new record holders and for such a muscled kind of sailing I would say that Yvan Bourgnon is not properly an young lad and it is in great shape.






But Bourgnon is really a small fast cat on big sea specialist. Look at him here on a Med cross:

They did not actualize their site so I guessed that they had abandoned the project. Well it seems that is nothing like that but that they have had something better to do than posting on internet.

I say that because I just saw a photo of Groupama when he was in Auckland and guess what was the boat that was sailing behind? Yes, Capado, Adrien’s boat. That photo was almost taken a month ago so, I guess they are coming home right now, half a voyage already completed.
Hello,
Sorry for having been away from sail net for so long. I see you managed to find us anyway. We are currently in Whangarei, NZ, for the half way refit. Then we'll go back to Australia, Brisbane. Our plan is to be for christmas at Cape town before going up the Atlantic up to New York and cross back to Europe and be back at Marseille on Septembre 2013.
We'll add a link on our construction blog: capado.over-blog.com to the cruising blog: levoyagedecapado.blogspot.com
We'll keep on editing our cruising blog all along the rest of our journey.
Don't hesitate to contact us for any question.

Regards

Capucine and Adrien on board Capado ( that stands for "Cap" and "Ado", both our nicknames, and the long bowsprit proves all the Portugese and Spanish people wrong....)

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Hey, Ado, we're not letting you off the hook on that joke so easy. I should clarify that the adjective "capado" has nothing to do with loosing the stick. Maybe hang two big ball fenders, take a picture and prove your point!

By the way, EXCELLENT movie clips! Keep them coming. An envy to many, being recently married and taking on that adventure with such passion! The dolphin shot is one-of-a-kind.
Best of luck and Fair Winds,
Hans (Puerto Rico, Caribbean USA)

Really looks he does not know what Capado means.

Hey Adrien if I were you I would put an acent on that name on the boat to read it the way you say it: Capadó. That sounds a lot better.

Regards and keep us posted

Is the same about the Nissan Pajero, that here in Chile was sold as Nissan Terrano, because "pajero" have a very bad mean here.
