    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?

    Banque Populaire just achieved a 6 days training Atlantic transat (Lorient - La Guadeloupe) , with a 5 men crew including Frank Cammas ( former skipper of AC 50 Groupama and now in search of a new sponsor). This route is equivalent to La Route du Rhum, the next race in October.

    Short report of the first months of sailing :
    "We sail very regularly at 38-42 Knots. We easily reach that kind of speeds without needing a lot of wind.....we have already faced all range of conditions, we have reached speed peaks of 45 Knots .... First feelings were superbs from the beginning but we have had to learn on the appendages adjustments..."

    Dolfiman, the picture that comes up for me is the same as in post 17 above. Am I missing something?
    Appears to be a slight reverse curve to the aft "rocker"....

    Oh yes, not a new photo, sorry. News message mentioned the return transat to Lorient, still with crew but during which Armel did some manoeuvres in solo. Now the boat is in preparation for the first event in confrontation, the Nice Ultimed end of April.
