A Real New Year
Michel Desjoyeaux has been leading the Vendee fleet for so long that it’s easy to forget that he is one of the guys that had to return to Les Sables, shortly after the start. When you think back and realize that he set off again 40 hours behind the others and, at one point was 600 miles adrift, it makes you wonder where he would have been without that set back.
Mich sent this picture of Foncia, in 45 knots of wind, as a New Year card to his shore team and everyone else involved. It’s a great pic, especially for an onboard shot in difficult conditions, and we reckon that, when his racing days are over, Mich could have a second career as a pro photog! Take a look at some more of his pix and see what you think.
