Video: 35ft light sailboat in a storm

They don't seem to mind and 50K winds and storm Andrea are not enough to put them sailing evasively. Nicolas Lunven and Eric Péron took the opportunity to train for the Transat AG2R La Mondiale and to take some spectacular images showing how to sail safely in a storm

Well, more how two great sailors can sail on a storm in a great small sailing boat, the Beneteau Figaro II, a solo or duo racer.

Appropriately reefed, on a reach, in waves that look more like at most 3-4 m. They're moving right along. Why shouldn't they be?

Single reef in 47-60 knots of wind? Give me a break
