"It's great to have a homogeneous and high-level fleet. There are top-notch sailors on board, including many international sailors who are on the Olympic circuit in NACRA or 49er. It's good to have them here because having them around us is a benchmark."

Franck Camas

"It's a new generation of boats: lightweight, 100% carbon flying boats, very fast. It's so exciting to be part of the adventure."

Jean Christophe Mourniac

"It's really nice, because it's very light and very responsive at the helm. The rudder is very balanced, there's not much effort required at the helm, so it's very enjoyable. It's surprising for a boat because it glides effortlessly."
