Hi Pat,

I ordered Yves' DVD of his 1982-3 solo circumnavigation and received it today. It is a beautiful film, highly recomended. He reminds me of Bernard Moitessier. He sailed on a shoe-string budget, relying on his wit and talent, filmed it all in 16mm with sound, and designed a cleverly simple improvement of the servo-pendulum self steerer!

I'm ready to send in my deposit.

It's also interesting that he completed his solo circumnavgation 25 years ago this May. What a nice anniversary present for him to get a bundle of orders for his creation born from that voyage.

David Wiencke
