While The Tour De France a la Voile has history, a great name, and a format that people understand, it’s on the verge of death, with just nine boats competing in the edition running now and almost zero worldwide interest in the race.  There isn’t one reason for the Tour’s; there are several; add up the massive bungling of the selection process/transition from the beloved Farr/Mumm 30 to the unloved Archambault M34 with France’s economic woes and a failure of the organizers to control cost and you have a recipe for failure.

Tour organizer ASO is looking to fix the problem, and Ouest France writes that they will announce an entirely new concept for the Tour on the 27th of July, speculating that the sexy, VPLP-designed DIAM 24 one-design trimaran might get the nod for a new inshore and coastal raid-style Tour format.  We’ve also heard rumors of a similar concept but driven by the GC-32 fouling cat; could these small racing cats really handle the huge variety of obstacles that coastal France, Britain, and Spain throw at them?  We’d like to find out.

You can find some video of the DIAM and a good discussion underway in the thread over here.

 The boys on the M34 Iskareen team continue to take great care of sailing reality show creator Sam Greenfield, and we continue to admire the work the young videographer is doing to bring the real feel of the Tour De France a la Voile to our screens.  And not just ours – Somehow Sam’s “The Other Tour De France” video made it up to the actual trillion-fan Tour De France (bicycle race) Facebook page too.  Not only can he shoot and edit, but the kid can spam!  Well done, and enjoy this great slice of life from lovely Breskens, Netherlands.  And if you want racing video – mostly of Franck Cammas and team caning the fleet, hit the TdF video page.  And if you missed part one of “Je Suis Sam (Sam, I am), go here.
