pifou by the sea

Not every minista gets Roland Jourdain aboard for last minute prep, but not every minista is a long-time trusted Veolia staffer.  Here’s a hauntingly pretty look at Pifou Dargnies’ final hours before the (now aborted) first leg of the Mini Transat.  If you’re looking for news, go here, and if you’re looking to see what huge waves look like on a little mini in Biscay, here’s another vid.

UPDATE:  Winning the ‘ultimate masochist’ award is Jeff MacFarlane, who is now trying to recover his abandoned and dismasted Mini while sourcing a new mast and sails.  This guy doesn’t even know how to spell ‘give up.’
