Virtual Loop du Mer - Vende Globe starts Nov 6

I thought some of you would like to know about this notice which was just sent. It's time to get ready, by updating your qtVLM software and account (free). Several years ago I managed to make it around and while in about 60th place at the end, slept and missed the finish line, hit France, and had to turn around and cross properly at 128th place. I probably should have been disqualified! Anyway it was a hoot, and I gained great respect for the passion and skill of the French sailors. Really! Anticipation and skill does count. Give it a try, I might! Use of gtVLM is highly recommended.

Could be interesting, I'll have a look. And thanks for sharing it.

As to doing that kind of race, you must have made memories that are more than lifelong. Along with making friends of the same sort.
