Scuttlebutt: Video of the Week

(June 11-15, 2007) There is something very “Je ne sais quoi” about the French and sailing. Maybe it is their “Laisser-faire” approach, or their sense of “Joie de vivre.” Whatever it is, they seem to have “Carte blanche” in the types of boats they sail and design. Simply said, everything seems very edgy, and this video (3:42 minutes) is a reflection of this. Watching the high-speed ocean-going monohulls, catamarans, and trimarans, plus windsurfing and kiteboarding, mixed with the song ‘Absolutely Everybody’ by Vanessa Amorosi, will leave you feeling very… French.
