The coverage was really excellent. One of the best I have seen with no BS wasting time away from the boats. Would be nice to have an English version but otherwise zero complaints from me.The stream was from the "IMOCA Globe series" and relayed by a few TV Channels "France O (O for Outremer), and some FR3 regional channels", I'm not sure the IMOCA class pays for the copters though, might be the local France TV organisation.
But anyway, having a youtube/FB whatever English stream would for sure not cost much more.
Meanwhile the battle seems to be truly going on at the front, T Ruyant in the lead now.
Yes and some Ultim and even the A class. Good idea, there is a lot of power loss with the typical boom/deck gap. Will be good to see it close up to see more of how it works but I guess these boats create so much apparent wind now the boom is more centered most of the time so that opens the option for introducing this type of arrangement.Like the AC boats!
He was listed as one of the skippers that use the race to complete their requirements.Simon did the TJV and returned solo as I recall at least part of the way back. He may already be good to go in terms of those qualifications.
