If someone needs help with a particular term or some words not in my list, just reply to the post with your questions, and I'll amend the list as needed.

Status: I'm putting together a list of french words as I think of them for now, in no particular order.
I'll start translating once I get all the major ones that are useful for sailboat characteristics in the list.

Terrific idea.  Those translation sites like Google don't do too well with nautical terms.
Can't think of one to add to the list at the moment, but I know there will be some.
Even though I can't attend the launching, of the 'little mule'?? I hope you will be able to provide some pictures, video or something. What a project. Still can't get over how you restored the original coach roof!  Congratulations.
Is this where you will be keeping the boat?

Yeah thanks:) I'll definitely make a video.

The photo is the port on the Island of Houat off our Atlantic coast, which I thought would add a nice bit of color to the list (I'm tucked in there between two stinckbuckets ;)

Lil' Mule II will live at ASM Voile for the moment.

"stinckbuckets'. An English term. Another variation: 'stinkpots'.  In French, that would be?

Thanks Cormorant.
Please post the new site address again, and let me know if I can help and how. (If you want)

I was looking at one of your past links and realized I have missed the 'Blue Djinn'.  Have you seen any of these around? Not a 'classic' necessarily like the Caprice. Much more recent. Still making them it seems.

Hi there :)

I've seen maybe one or two of them in a port, but that's about it. To be honest, I remember this because I was surprised to see one.
The real popular ones around here tend to be the Ecume de Mer (basically a larger Jouët Caprice concieved pratically simultaniously), the Kelt 6,20 the First 18, the Jouët Sheriff, etc.  Looking at the association's website, their list of suggested locations apear to be (other than the  Golfe du Morbihan) southern destinations which I can't vouch for at all...

The new long-term project website is at www.thesundaysailor.com, we'll see how that ends up as time goes on :)
