    We were in Brest when the boats finished the Bermuda 1000 earlier this spring. While I like traditional boats it was very cool to see them sailing. The power is amazing, we were out in a friends fishing boat (motor) and couldn't keep up with them. We also bumped into Sam Davies in the pub and Murielle was thrilled to meet a hero of hers.

    Cheers,
    Mark

    Some another pictures of the new Arkea Paprec for Sébastien Simon. Should be ready for the next Fastnet, 3rd of August, with Vincent Riou as co-skipper.
