With the Route du Rhum starting early tomorrow morning here on the West Coast, (approximately 5:15 AM on Wednesday morning Pacific time), we’ve been constantly frothing for more English language content that gives us a better perspective on the French offshore sailing scene.

The Gitana Team has consistently done a very nice job with their media work, which always includes English subtitles, and we were stoked to see Episode 1 of their 2nd season of Flying Offshore drop on YouTube recently. Filmed and directed in large part by renowned media man Yann Riou, the show has stunning visuals and a captivating storyline highlighted by skipper Charles Caudrelier preparing for this first major race in solo mode. – Ronnie Simpson.
