Jean Le Cam on Fire (VIDEO) - Vendée Globe 2012-2013: "Check out this video of Jean Le Cam standing on the press conference table, dancing to Johnny Hallyday's song "Allumer le Feu" (Light the fire)"
Jean Le Cam's overview of the race: “This Vendée Globe was very difficult, especially towards the end. There has been very few good moments, but because they were so rare, they were exceptional. When you spend four days off the coast of Brazil so shaken you can’t have coffee or piss, the slightest calmer moment feels so great. The contrasts is the most important.”

Dana Johannsen: Few clues to how America's Cup contenders rate - Opinion - NZ Herald News: " . . . Oracle skipper Jimmy Spithill has remained his typical chipper self about the situation his team found itself in after the October capsize. Even after four months of being stuck on shore, Spithill feels his team are right on track for their Cup defence. Swedish team Artemis have been even less visible with multiple setbacks, and it is difficult to get any sort of gauge of where they sit. Perhaps the two different approaches are a reflection of the fact that Team New Zealand are the only syndicate that aren't being bankrolled by a billionaire. You have to do things differently when you have commercial sponsors to answer to, not to mention the taxpayer. . . ."
