Last but not least!

Enjoy some photographs taken on Sunday the 1st of July, 2012 from the VIP steam boat Côte-d’Azur.

After a two-week break in Lorient, the fleet is on the way to Galway for Leg 9.

Despite of a tough start Camper managed to win Leg 9. Groupama sailing team arrived second in Galway which means… no matter how they will sail the last In-port Race in Ireland… they won the Volvo Ocean Race 2011-2012! Congratulations to the French Franck Cammas and his teammates!

~~~ 800 ~~~

The pictures presented below are not the best ones… but I love this cathedral and I need to share it!

Every evening this summer there is a great show on the cathedral. It helps you to imagine how colorful the cathedral looked like when it was first built and how they built it!

Whenever you have time, please try to spend a week end in Rheims in the summer 2011, you will not regret it!
