This quality video by Vimeo will bring you closer to the spirit of the race and also to the interesting and warm personality of skippers committed to undertaking this amazing 8-month long adventure on the high seas that will take them by the three capes in the Southern hemisphere and back to France.
A daunting sailing adventure not for the faint-hearted or novice, if only because it presents itself mainly as both an endurance test and an opportunity for honest self-exploration amidst demanding natural elements. The trial at sea of bold skippers with nothing on their conscience but a sweet obsession for the combined vastness of three oceans haunted by howling winds and soul-nagging solitudes sparsely settled by companionable sea creatures.
With opening remarks by Sir Robin Know-Jonston.
