Happy New Year to all our readers!

The whole Bateaux.com team wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Christmas time already, starting with Christmas! The opportunity to rest a little and spend a good time with family, friends, alone, two or ten, on land, as on sea for the luckiest among you!

This is also the case for our sailors in the Vendée Globe who will be alone at sea for the end of the year celebrations! "For Christmas I'm going to eat with friends because I'm fed up with the family meal where we drink a little too much and fight at the end. We won't be in a depression yet so it's perfect." said King Jean (Le Cam) during his session on Friday 23 December on the Vendée Globe!

It is the occasion for the whole team, Audren, Faustine, Briag, Chloé and François-Xavier at the editorial staff, Florent, Steven and Philippe at the technical staff, Karine, Cédric, Ludivine and Yann at the management to wish you a very happy festive season and hope that you have been good all year to see beautiful boats sliding at the foot of the tree!
