    Some translation of the foil control system board, in case of :
    - Dérive is central daggerboard
    - Bd is for Port, Td is for Starbord
    - SAF FL means probably Rudder Foil (Rudder is Safran in French)
    - SAF CC means probably Rudder of the central hull (CC for Coque Centrale)
    - montée means up
    - descente means down

    Thanks-I wish we could see the controls on the right side? I wonder about having the daggerboard foil set in one position without constant attention. I guess somebody could stand by that control panel all the time?
