“Cool” sailing video & a “Cold” start to winter

French Sailing
Although I’m not fond of French politics or the occasionally noted attitude toward Americans, I do acknowledge that some of their seafaring citizens have figure out how to get the most from the wind. Check out the impressive hydrofoil multi-hulled sailboat video below as it tows a couple of wakeboarders!

On a side note, my friend Ben Eriksen who keeps a Nor’Sea Liveaboard blog on the east coast posted his latest chilling sail (motor) video to YouTube while moving to a new winter home at Maciel Marine in Vineyard Haven. Here’s hoping for a short ‘mild’ winter and that Santa brings him a pair of warm longjohns!
