At the arrival in Brest of Banque Populaire after setting a new Jules Verne Trophy record time, so Brian Thompson shared a few of his thoughts on the trip. Vincent Lauriot of VPLP, designers of the 40m tri gave us his impressions (as well us an update on the AC 72 design package and Lionel le Lemonchois’ new 80ft tri) and the BP nav team of Juan Vila and router Marcel van Triest talked us through their part in the effort. 470 sailors Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell are going to London 2012. Tom Gillard and Sam Brearey are the new Fireball World Champions. Following Glenn Ashby’s win, Nathan Outteridge came second in the all-star cast at the Aussie A-Class Nationals.
