That's fantastic news. Such a cool boat and I was thrilled to see him leading after such a tough race.They righted the boat and the rig is still up... all good
Incredible! Who did the rigging and where did the mast come from? Marketing opportunity.
Philippe Poupon's first words:
"I'm always glad to arrive at the port, it's also why sailors make crossings."
We live with emotions everyday. Bit of a bumpy start had to stop twice put a lil behind the schedule I also wanted to move the boat so it could get to Pointe-à-Pitre. This is why I moved south to avoid the winter storms that were still running, not far from the Azores. I made the wise decision to extend the road and give it a slightly quieter slippery drive.
First night I caught the chariot snapped had to stop at Port La Forêt the next day ratchet state showing signs of weakness changed my battle plan but I'm not have it anyway not left winning the title. The goal really was to get this beautiful boat here for all Guadeloupeans to admire. This is still the boat Florence won the rum route with, still beautiful. I think a lot of people would be pleased to have him here again. The emotion, it's pretty much there!
Florence is a little bit everywhere, she has been with us for a very long time and even if she is up there, she is still with us. "

He is coming up tonight. So tired , so emotional . He barely realizes his achievement, what he has gone through. He has a tight throat recollecting his magnificent race, sadly lost, or the reunion of his beloved trimaran Jess when he heard a plane over the tugboat, his daughter Lucie's voice, giving Jess's exact position, which led to find him again!
If he'd pick his pen, he'd tell a real adventure movie. May be...
Thank you everyone for your support.
He is strong, impressive! And sensitive as well
