i and i of the storm
If this incredible video of Eric Peron and Nicolas Lundven preparing for the France to Caribbean Transat AG2R doesn’t blow your mind, the names on the entry list of the ultimate double handed 30-footer challenger for the 30 foot Figaro 2 will: Jourdain, Desjoyeaux, De Pavant, Le Cam…it’s a who’s who of the IMOCA world, but crammed into boats half the size and a quarter of the speed. The economy isn’t doing great things for racing, but how else could you get superstars like these to spend 20+ days on thirty foot boats with spinnaker poles? We dig this legend-making race, and we’ll be judiciously watching the AG2R Twitter Feed for news, video, and pics beginning April 6.
