I love how this experience brought out the poet in Seb and Conrad, among others.

 

I enjoyed his cheesy humor the whole time.  I liked the video that showed him enjoying his coffee sitting on deck on a sunny day moving well with a nice breeze, just a simple and pure moment, the essence of the pleasure of sailing.

Finally the English version...timed his finish perfectly for big canal turnout. The key comes out for the last time to close this edition.

What a great finishing speech Seb just gave!  Hat's off to him and his unbounded spirit of 'just go' and do your best.

I had never heard of him before the race. I have to admit that I found him a little bit "cheesy" at the beginning, with his "welcome to the office" gimmick on each video, etc.

 

Never saw Destopnews?  That's where the ''welcome to the office'' is from :)

You should hear this as well, great tribute to Riou and Le Cam from Destremeau

Seb is an absolutely class act- I really enjoyed his race, and that speech at the end demonstrates it perfectly. 

 

Wonder if FaceOcean will finally be put into retirement or does she have one more adventure left in her?

Sarcasm? Fake news? Not sure what tribute means here, as his position is far from that. He seems to say Riou only won because of a problem with Desjoyeaux (?) and out of 4 Vendee Globes has only finished one. As for Le Cam, he doesn't exist and not worth mentioning his name. He even says it is about time Riou tried doing something other than the Vendée Globe and Le Cam is someone he doesn't want to know.

Riou's VG win was a perfectly executed race. One of my favorite wins. Desjoyeaux didn't sail that year.

Ouch, I am not so sure that the whale survived very long. I wonder if they could find some device to scare off the whales (ultrasonic may be?).

Sarcasm, this is SA after all.

 

Destremeau said that beind 2nd or last is the same thing, that Riou won on a 'misunderstanding' and that Le Cam is a Nobody.

 

As Tabarly said "If you can't spend 124 days at sea, tired and hungry and come back polite or silent, don't go sailing.."

So...If you ain't first you're last? Even Ricky Bobby's dad admitted the flaw in that logic.
