Last week we went in Port la Nouvele (south of France) for a training day. We sailed 4h23min. Here is the video of the day :

In January, Alain & Michel went to the Lac Laffrey in order to test the Wetsuit their partner NPX sent them few days ago.
You will find through this video the result of the tests session. Sorry but it’s in French Language.
It’s early December that everything is confirmed when we got home the JP Australia boards which we will use during the crossing.
Beginning of January arrived sails, masts, booms
Neil Pryde and part of the NPX Neoprene in Voreppe.
Equipped from head to feet, it was time to make a first test session for all new materials.
The appointment was given at Lake Laffrey, 900m above sea level.
Is it legitimate to live a passion that involves accepting a major risk?
In history and practice of extreme sports, we are constantly facing disappearance drama, accident and death.
One must distinguish the quest and its efforts ???. We are not looking for danger. We seek
alliance with nature forces and nature itself.
Nature is what we cannot control.
Nature is primarily this non-developed, unorganized, uncontrolled by man area .
It is an inexhaustible source of gross pleasure and oversized emotions.
Nature is sending in tune with our wild feelings, it is close to love.
We know how vulnerable we are when we sail on seas, tiny dots disappearing on the horizon. It’s a chance, it is a challenge. That’s a lot of humility and pride.
It is the pleasure of briefly transcend human condition to better understand it.
The right to risk, is now more than ever, an important claim. It must be preserved.
It is, like poetry, the last field of etiquette, or even excellence, taste of happiness, love of nature and life itself.
Through our adventures, we just accept nature within us.
We engage ourselves on a quest that apparently weakens life, but actually sharpens it.
