A Bit Too South for a Cassoulet (Bean Stew)

Leader Loick Peyron has had his first hot meal of the race so far, last night serving up a bean stew cassoulet under the moonlight on his 'patio' on Banque Populaire. He anticipates a lot of hard work ahead as the gybing starts downwind. 

"For the first time since the start on Nov. 2 at St Malo, I'll eat something hot. The smoke soon clears and I have a cassoulet served on the terrace under a caring and reassuring moon. 
A little south for cassoulet? Indeed, it was on the menu for the first day, but it was impossible to heat anything. It's going nicely under the anticyclone which could eat us, we will make it though, just brushing his moustache without waking it because it stretches ... it's a bit of a trap.

The third day has seen its share of maneuvers and exhausting work when it comes in a few hours, trimming the sails to the expected weather conditions. I speak with Armel and Marcel 24hours a day and it is perfect.

Great team, beautiful machine, going good so far!
