Who knows, this just might work to get more photos :)

I noticed you don't have any for the Requin - such a beautiful boat this is scandalous hahaha  ;)

It so happens that I have a friend that owns one. Here are some photos for http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_ID=6422 that I took for you this weekend.





She is a lovely boat, but a bitch to maintain (wood is lovely, but no thank you).

If you (or any other visitors of Sailboatdata.com that know how to sail) are ever in the Paris area, feel free to drop me a line and you can take her for a spin (solo or otherwise).

Here is a rather undignified photo of my friend Eric's Jout 18 that you can use for http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_ID=5618 taken during our "bar to bar" regatta (yes, we go from one club to another, where we drink ourselves silly). As you can see there was NO WIND.

Like I say, not very dignified, but a great photo photo of the boat (you can see the lines of the Jout Caprice in her, as she is a smaller version by the same designer):



Incidentially, though Eric painted on the indian head ( the logo of the Lafayette Escadrille (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lafayette_Escadrille ) proof that the French really do love America) the Jout 18 is well known for, and partly identifiable by, its yellow hull (like the Caprice's dark hull). Boy, talk about a series of useless facts...  :D
