Amazing video covering a quarter of a century of development of l’Hydroptère DCNS in a 3 or 8 minutes long HD video.
See the origin of the dream with Eric Tabarly, the scale models, the first flights and the first crashs, the Channel record, l’Hydroptère capsizing at 56 kts, the outright sailing speed records and finally the Transpacific record attempt… Alain Thébault and his crew share some incredible footage
