Aren't you the same fellow who thought VOR65's were stupid and dangerous because of water over the deck? An center cockpit that's indoors is suddenly too much for you?Just can't imagine why anyone would actually want to sail round the world shut up in the inside of a black box. I like to see people having fun!
No. Not me.Aren't you the same fellow who thought VOR65's were stupid and dangerous because of water over the deck? An center cockpit that's indoors is suddenly too much for you?
Well, if you communicate with the world, the world responds... I have trouble followind the French sailors because I don't know wtf they are. I know who AT is, and I understand his language.You know very well that the frustration was NOT the fact that the conversation has been in English; this is a forum ran by an American, after all! The frustration was that more than 50% of the discussion was on Alex Thomson and Hugo Boss, at the expense of all the other competitors performance.
It looks like I mis-understood you.If you look back above you will see that someone commented on the face that the midday briefing was conducted in English. I then posted a comment, in which i noted that I was surprised/shocked to see that indeed the English version of the broadcast had not been preceded/followed by a version in French. I was really surprised.
Having then noticed that the evening show was boardcast in French.....I then wanted to point that out i.e. good on you Vende doing right by your home audience. Honestly, your trying to tar me but hey ho.
At not point was i addressing the issue of coverage of Alex Thompson, if that indeed was the source of French frustration. Hopefully Vende will read the comments and try to address it with more content from the French sailors......which would be great.
