France? No Problem. UK? Er, we’ll have to check.

Featured in the video below are two yachts competing in the Vendee Globe round-the-world race. Interesting video because it was shot almost entirely by the helicopter crew from the French frigate Nivôse. I feature the video of the race for two reasons: a Brit is one of the two leaders of this truly terrifying race; and the other is because the French have warships which can be depended upon to actually go somewhere, have a check up on the little guys, and then return: which is more than we can claim!
