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!

A great family band helped me with the title of this post: thanks! But the title only. The content is, once again, related to the Volvo Ocean Race and its stop in Lorient, France.

Il y a quelques années de cela, le premier plan de bateaux colorait un paysage cubique, grisonnant et désolé: la base de sous-marins construite pendant la Deuxième Guerre mondiale. Une base indestructible! Seules les marées donnaient un peu de vie à l’endroit.

Récemment, la Cité de la Voile Eric Tabarly a transformé ce paysage. Dessinée en blocs et vagues, elle réconcilie le jeu fluide des marées océanes aux arrêtes dures des blocs de  béton.
