M34 groupama Onboard

La Trinité sur Mer, Brittany , France 47°33'85"N 3°00'73"W

The 2011 Tour de France a la Voile might be lightly populated and it might take us all a long time before we get over our nostalgic love for days of the huge Mumm 30 fleets, but the big guns are ready to play in the new M34 and Christophe Launay was with Frank Cammas and his Groupama’s Sailing Team for some light air training in preparation for the huge Breton gathering at Spi Ouest.

Marseille, France 43º15’29″N 5º22'07″E

Christophe Launay shows off more of the inventive lighting we see so much of from him, this time shooting the top French Olympic 29er team of Manu Dyen and Stephane Christidis during the final week of winter training camp in Marseilles. And this time, Christophe gives us poetry to go along with it!
Words: Alan Block

A sense of achievement at mastering skills,
A sense of joy and exhilaration at the beauty of nature,
The stimulus and adrenalin rush in moments of speed,
The satisfaction of redefining performance boundaries,
And, above all, a sense of fun.
