Former VOR Dongfeng media crew Yann Riou picks up where he left off as one of sailing’s visual poets, this time aboard the maxi Trimaran Spindrift 2 as she continues her assault on the Jules Verne Trophy. It’s a beautiful, English-subbed look at the kind of work these bad boys do when things calm down, complete with aerials from the on-board drone. And don’t forget – Francis Joyon and crew are going for the same outright round-the-world record as Bertarelli/Guichard on S2, and the two boats are almost within spitting distance of eachother!
Don’t bother with the official trackers – SA’er “Volodiaja” has built his own “Universal Tracker” complete with all sorts of tricky functions; follow the two fastest ocean-racing sailboats on the planet right here. Talk about it in Ocean Racing Anarchy.

Bjoern Kils from NY Media Boat took advantage of NY’s recent spate of sailing activity, getting both video and photos of the Atlantic Cup on Wednesday and shooting the awesome 97-foot IDEC playing around in light air yesterday.
We dug this pic the most, juxtaposing the sailor who embodies “freedom” with the tower named for it.
More on Joyon and IDEC here, and don’t even think about using this photo…© NYmediaboat.com
