    New imoca boats

    Facebook translation: BREAKING NEWS Kevin Escoffier succeeds me at prb's bar! The Vendée Globe is a magical test that requires a lot of investment and an exclusive passion. I didn't want to do the vendée globe too much. It's a great satisfaction to know that prb will go back with someone else. Kevin is able to meet this challenge. He's not an experienced person, he's a very experienced person! He is one of the most competent sailors in France today.

    Route du Rhum 2018

    From their FB page: "Alex Thomson Racing is currently managing a developing incident, which occurred during La Route du Rhum: Destination Guadeloupe. Today between 21:45 and 22:00 AST Alex Thomson’s IMOCA 60 race boat grounded on Guadeloupe island. Skipper Thomson is safe, uninjured and in no danger. Structural checks are ongoing. The situation is being closely reviewed and monitored by the technical and management teams at Alex Thomson Racing, who are in contact with Thomson, together with the Route du Rhum race organisation. Thomson is continuing to race onboard HUGO BOSS and intends to complete the race." So the boat actually grounded and Alex is safe, but I wonder what that does to the resale value of the boat.
