The area they're doing the speed records is French territory, which may explain the French flags. It could be a courtesy flag, the Swiss flag may be an ensign.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

If you can't accept windsurfers then you're really going to have a problem with this one http://innovoile.free.fr/YPE_e.html

On the subject of fast, anyone else catch this in the news? http://www.bymnews.com/news/newsDetails.php?id=21392

Around the world at an average speed of better than 19 kts. Wow!

Edit: Oops, looks like this was already posted here.

There are 10 kinds of people. Those who understand binary and those who don't.
