The last videos from Capado Circumnavigation:

Thanks Robelz

And their circumnavigation finished at the end of September. They returned to Marseille. The last videos, one in Azores where they even sailed alongside a local regatta and the way back to Europe, another two with them arriving at Marseille.

The boat, a small FOX 10.20 rake the circumnavigation with easiness (they even tool a friend from the States - 3 in the boat). They found out that the lifting keel was of no great use after all and were very satisfied with the boat performance and comfort.

They don't have the money to keep the boat so, as it was planned from the begging, they are going to sell it. It will be an interesting affair for someone that wants a boat prepared for extensive travelling (depending on the price).

Great sailors are cool

I remember some years ago when Cammas on an upturned trimaran at the middle of the night (in a storm) waited for 9.00AM in France to inform the rescue services, because he did not want to disturb their rest time and now it is Lionel Lemonchois, on a capsized trimaran since Monday that will wait 5 days for the towing team: no problem he says: "I have food and water and my hand is not so badly hurt as I thought." All is well at the middle of the Atlantic on a capsized trimaran. I love those guys

Trimaran Banque Populaire VII: Visite 3D

An interesting visit to the ARMEL LE CLÉAC´H boat, the giantt trimaran Banque Populaire VII.

Maxi Trimaran Solo Banque Populaire VII

This boat has a water ballast tank on the back of the boat to better its behavior running downwind with big waves.

Sailing it solo Armel is going to beat the Record of the "la Route des Decouverts". He was 750NM of advance over the actual holder, Joyon. Meantime, as I had posted, he had beaten twice the absolute solo sailor 24 hours record.

We could think this is the top of the crop in what regards maxi racing Oceanic trimarans....well, some think the Price de Bretagne is faster...but he is upside down in the middle of the Atlantic, I would say that it is Spinddrift 2, if well sailed.

Now prepare yourself to be confused: Spindrift 2 is the renamed Banque Populaire V, the boat that with Peyron and his crew is the holder of the absolute circumnavigation record, while Banque Populaire VII, Armel's boat is an older, smaller and slower one, the ex- Grupama, the one that was the previous holder of the circumnavigation record with Cammas (and crew) and the one used by Cammas to win solo the last Route du Rhum.

Contrary to what would be expected the Banque Popular V is a more modern boat that Banque Popular VII. To easily distinguish both on photos (since they are painted the same way), Banque Populaire V is the one with the inverted bows while the VII still has traditional bows.

Here you can see both boats on their original colors: The Groupama and the Banque Populaire V. Look at the size of the man between the two boats...they are huge

Re: Interesting Sailboats

130.000 pounds sounds a little bit to much for a boat with a whole circumnavigation even if it is a very good one...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

That's the asking price. You can say that he has made a circumnavigation but on the other end is a boat with less than three years. They have a lot of equipment on the boat from solar panels to an hidrogenerator and I don't know if a watermaker, but yes I believe they will not sell for that price. They have plenty of sails but not a furler. They are good sailors and like to use sails on a tuff luff but that for a solo sailor would not work. I believe they will sale for a lot less.

Regards

Paulo
