    Must be fun to hear captain Huusela welcoming you aboard this Finnair flight to somewhere when you fly on Finnair... probably the only airline in the world to have a VG finisher commanding one of its planes...

    Interesting to see how a school followed Kojiro in Japan... different cultures, but the same interest for adventures at sea.

    I hope Armel gets a new boat, hope to see him on the next VG in a competitive boat, it really sucks if he was not involved in the decision and just told about it out of the blue on the phone... only worse thing would have been to be told by sms, or through the press...

    Yes, he asked if it was Saint Julien and they said it was... unbelievable to hear about his delamination issues... he was basically sailing under a Damocles sword since the kerguelens... interesting to hear him explain the stress it created and how confidence in his second repair strengthened as...
