248 Nm en 24H

Après 17 jours et quelques heures, Franck et son équipage sont arrivés à Grenade, terme de la RORC Transatlantic Race...

Voici , dans la langue de Shakespeare, leur interview d'arrivée:

The crew of five looked tired after nearly 17 days at sea and over 3,000 miles of racing, but owner Frank Lang was full of praise for his crew and the yacht that had looked after them so well during the Atlantic crossing: “I was born in La Baule and it is a town famous for sailing. It is in my blood, but this journey has been full of surprises. During a period of strong wind, when we had 30 maybe 35 knots, we sailed 248 miles in 24 hours, averaging over 10 knots which is a very fast speed for Optim'X. It is the fastest that the boat has ever been, but for the last three days of the race, we have had very light winds, which has made it a long race for us. The finish was hard with no wind as we arrived. We were tacking continuously, looking for that last breath of wind.

“Everything is okay with the boat and we were all good friends before this race, and nothing has changed in that regard! We have sailed together for a long time and for me, this is my fifth crossing but not the fastest. However, I am looking forward to taking part in the RORC Caribbean 600, which was one of the reasons we decided to race with the RORC to Grenada."

DLM décembre

Voici un message de Joël, notre grand ordonateur du DLM "Maison de la Mer"

Le prochain et dernier DLM de l’année aura lieu le 29 décembre.

Comme l’année dernière, je propose que les personnes qui souhaitent être présentes, contribuent à son animation en ramenant et en partageant soit de quoi grignoter à l’apéro soit éventuellement une bouteille…

Naturellement pour ces personnes, aucune contribution ne sera demandé.

Cordialement

Joël
