Little news.
After leaving Marseille, l'Hermione crosses the Gulf of Lion to anchor again in the bay of Rosas.

Arrived at Port-Vendres.

Well, the music of Pirates of the Caribbean ... I do not know.

Here is the video, to my knowledge this is the first time a video about Hermione does not paint an idyllic sail where "everything is beautiful".

- sea sickness
- almost crushed fingers
- a fore-braces that gets stuck in the night with many wind
- a jib difficult to bring back
- Fatigue, doubt to go up to tighten the mainsail and the pains.

The "real life" sailing. Away from the postcards.
An eighteenth century rigging with the enormous requirement that it implies for the sailors, from the commander to the topman.

But it's fantastic to a live this !!!
