America’s cup Valencia

 America’s cup Valencia

I’m in Valencia in Spain to follow the America’s Cup, and especially the French boat “Areva”.

I assist Franck Socha photographer for Areva. I spend my days on the water to follow the races, to take pictures…

The America’s Cup for those which do not know, it is formula 1 sailing. It’s really nice to follow it from the interior, people here, live only for that and much pass their whole life to follow this cup.

Support Areva on Internet site Areva challenge and follow the America’s cup here
And now I am America’ S cup addict!!

Yesterday the matches were enthralling, transfer after transfer, a few meters separate the boats, and i became caught quickly to the game.

Areva challenge did not have a chance yesterday for 5 second against the boat Victory Challenge. Today, in the first match, they come to beat the German boat, cross the fingers for the next matches.

I kited today during 2 hours, before the start of the race.

The first act of the Louis Vuitton cup is finished, Areva end up 8, after doing the most beautiful matches in my opinion, against Shosholoza, Victory, United Germany… certainly the matches the more tighten , the most palpitating…

On my side it was a very good experiment, being on water all the day, experience the cup from inside, to take pictures, to meet many people, passionated by sailing and the cup.

I moved now from Valence this morning to Anglet for the world Championship of Longboard organized by Oxbow, I will spend 3 days here.
