    Bidegorry will buy it, but with which sponsor it is not known yet
  4. Nice trick from Michel, the only black boats are Hb, Charal, and l'occitane right ?
  5. Hello all .. This America's cup section is kind of though to navigate for people (like me), not coming everyday, and mostly looking for new videos or major news regarding any team. Would it be possible to have new videos posted here (as well as the corresponding team thread) and keep the pages of comments more in the teams threads ?
  6. Indeed little chance it works, will see ..

    Pogo style kit boat

    Indeed the plans from David Reard are almost all kit and amateur Construction oriented, and not extreme beams at all. And they perform : Alex Ozon won the last transquadra on one. Below his site : https://www.mediareard.com/

    SailGP 2020

    Is the sailgp site totally messed up or what ? I keep landing on 2019 races pages looking for results and stuff. Is the French boat repaired ? reparaible for this race ? next one ?

    Bidegorry will be the one racing the current Macif on the coming Transat CIC ! : Garbart concentrating on constructing the new boat. I guess this confirms that Bidegorry will be the one buying the current one. In fact the official reason is that "he is tired" and needs recuperation : https://voilesetvoiliers.ouest-france.fr/bateau/ultim/transat-cic-gabart-passe-la-barre-de-son-trimaran-macif-a-bidegorry-965d3318-57cd-11ea-ab47-6673aa87a591
  12. Let's have a seperate thread for Francis and his Asian tour, he deserves it ! Really going very South now on their St Louis (Mauricius Island) to Ho chi Minh Vietman leg , but he said that would be the route : https://trimaran-idec.geovoile.com/portlouis_hochiminh/2019/tracker/ When will they turn left ?

    No Rorc Caribbean 600 thread..?

    So there is no "production cats" (like outremers or TS) in the Mocra class this year ?

    Indeed, and in fact it was quite close for them missing the train after the Azores high, very close.

    Impressive (or lucky) finish : And it will probably continue till the end.

    Francis Joyon IDEC Asian tour

    Not very lucky with this Azores high, it got more complicated and moved, but should still be ok afterwards.
  21. My understanding is that he never "applied", but I think I remember somebody saying/writing they were not opposed to it at all. Edit : Maybe it's not that clear, in below interview, Alex is saying that he was refused to come to the last training for the last VG, but if he had ask to do all them most probably he would have been accepted .. https://www.ouest-france.fr/route-du-rhum/route-du-rhum-alex-thomson-les-gars-de-bretagne-sont-les-meilleurs-du-monde-6041350
  22. It seems to be that one thing that AT could have done and didn't is to join the "training camp" in Port Laforet, but that would have meant relocating the team if not choosing another yard. But about long solo sessions, it is much more related to the planning and circumstances (breaking the boat in last TJV), which also happened with the previous one. Otherwise he for sure had some in his plans, and probably still has.

    Yes the North Atlantic looks quite good, elongated thin Azores high, and then should go fast up to London
