MACHINE TRANSLATION

francis-joyon-vainqueur-de-la-route-du-r

In any professional universe, there is always a personality that stands out from the lot! In the world of French offshore racing, this personality bears a name: Francis Joyon.

Entered by "Breaking and entering" at the end of the years 80 by constructing with his hands a multihull of 22 meters long, he is now the man of all records alone, but also as a crew. Some people compare it to Éric Tabarly. Same physical strength, same discretion, and, like Eric, a kind of foolproof. While he starts at 62 years the last straight line of his sporting career, a portrait of this Sailor "no-limit" seems inevitable. A film directed by Nicolas Raynaud before the victory of the sailor of Locmariaquer in the Route of rum 2018.

A coproduction Bleu Oise, Sea events, Tébéo, TVR, TébéSud, local chains of Brittany supported by the Brittany region

Agree.well worth watching with a good overview of what he did in the past. Loved the piece where he cut of the back of the boat in order to comply with class.

Nice one QBF! 

Funny how dated some of those machines look now as they each seemed incredibly modern each time they put to sea. What’ll they look like in the next 30 years?

I love how passionate the Breton crowds are!!
