The 47 boats racing in La Solitaire du Figaro arrived in Caen this week: http://www.lasolitaire.com/EN/. Fabien Delahaye, a 27-year old local skipper from Caen, crossed the finish line in Ouistreham first, winning the first stage of the race.
We went yesterday evening to see our first French organized racing scene. Tormentina cruised around on a green vintage skateboard that our friend Laurent let her borrow. We listened to live jazz, checked out the booths, and of course looked at all the boats! We've never seen so many of the same boats all in once place before.
