Nous remercions tous ceux qui nous ont aider à finaliser le budget par l’intermédiaire de KissKissBankbank.
Le départ est proche, nous serons en Alaska le 16 juillet. Pour l’instant c’est effervescence des derniers préparatifs. Loin de tout, nous ne devrons rien oublier.
Un dernier entraînement entre Gruissan et Cap Leucate…
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 :

This month, our partner Planchemag published a double page on our tests session in the Lake of Laffrey.
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.

This day allowed us to test our new suits, gloves, boots, boards and sails which will be used for the crossing.
At 2011 Boat Show, while we were there searching potential partners, we have met Antoine Albeau, David Garrel and Alexandre Caizergues.
These three greats windsurfers and kite surfer are supporting us in this magnificent project.
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.
