Screen Shot 2015-02-19 at 3.46.23 PMWe loved the news yesterday that Banque Populaire would be extending its sponsorship of sailing for 5 more years with the building of a Banque Pop IX – a brand new monster trimaran for the solo Ultim Class.

A tidbit in the release caught our eye though; the team announced the sale to Francis Joyon of the most iconic trimarans of the modern era – the Banque Pop VIII  (née Groupama 3) that Loick Peyron just raced to a crushing record of the Route Du Rhum course.

Francis Joyon asked BP to keep things quiet for now, but the paint don’t lie – it’s getting scrubbed today in preparation for a brand new look.

We’ll let you know when the new name goes on…

Looking for some of the great sailing videos this week to watch on a near-summer Sunday?  We’ve got it for you right here.

High Line

As much as we like the one-design idea of the next Volvo Ocean Race, there’s no doubt that the usual buildup of excitement for the VOR is largely gone without the open design challenge of a developmental class.  The VOR hasn’t handled this change with a lot of grace, but Rick Deppe and his video team are finally getting it rolling, and this look at what it’s like to work in the sky is both beautiful and interesting.

Time Line

Petey Crawford shares a time lapse look at a series of ‘days in the life’ of a sailing videographer, with a nice track and some of the prettiest scenery you can imagine.

Scout Report

We never let a chance to speak to Loïck Peyron slip by, and he stopped by the Austrian Alps with Artemis teammate Iain Percy to have a peek at the foiling GC32 action on Lake Traunsee.   Mr. Clean sat down with the boys to see what they thought about the foiler and where it fits into the AC world, and watch the final day of action at the GC32 Austria Cup right here on the front page starting at 1000 CET/0900 UTC today.  For dozens more interviews, go here.

Scouts Rising

If sailing is to ever to grow again, it ain’t Yacht Clubs that will make it happen; it will be the sailing centers, community organizations, and folks like the Sea Scouts who spread the word to the unwashed masses.  Huge, well-funded spots like the new 60,000 square foot Sea Scout base in Galveston, TX will lead the way; check them out above and support Sea Scouts in your neck of the woods.

The Haunted

Sure it’s a sport, but it’s also all about soul and history and isolation and all the things that don’t easily fall into the realm of ‘competition.’  Here’s a look at some of that soul, captured by some of the sport’s ocean racing pioneers.
