Video: Loïck Peyron talks about Alinghi's new catamaran (French)
Given the fact 15% of our readers are from French-speaking countries, we publish Loïck Peyron's comments on Alignhi 5, Alingh's new catamaran, in French. They, obviously, don't differ much from the previous ones in English but in his native language, Peyron is more eloquent and better describes how impressed he was. In his closing remark, Peyron think the first test sails will be "crazy" and "fascinating" for the crew.

Since Loïck Peyron makes reference to Le Black, Alinghi's 41ft catamaran, we publish a photo of her during some tests Alinghi's designers carried out in Valencia last year.
