    Ha, ha. They're a strange bunch, those Cantabrian mainlanders. I lived in Canterbury for 4 years and I definitely wasn't considered a local. ;-)

  3. Wow. That was a great interview. Sebastien is really hurting. Before the destruction of the foil, he thought the boat had amazing speed, even upwind, so he is happy she has plenty of potential. Lots of other interesting info about hull strengthening work too. Check it out.

    ^Great interview with, Phil. Interesting discussion about the cost of campaigning a Class 40 Vs an IMOCA60. 1/10th the cost over a year, including design/build and operational costs. Lots of good stuff there. Thanks to, Ed.
