Congratulations on the race - 7 minutes and 17 seconds off of your last best time is impressive.
So, a toast to you, with a tall cool glass of...
In solidarity - with the finest purest water one can find. (And in a glass bottle to boot!) :)
That's very kind of you TS. Merci!
On a side note, the last 10km of the marathon follow the Léman lake. There were quite impressive catamarans (carbon-black, super agressive look, and vast sail, to say the least). Searching a bit on the internet, it looks like it was Décision 35
boats. In this article
, they explain some Swiss engineers are developing a modern version of D35 they will call TF35 and that is an hydrofoiler catamaran (is that how one call the "flying-boats"?). They hope those things will sail three times faster than wind speed. It seems impressive to me but I have no clue how it compare to e.g. the technology of boats of the America's cup., to be honest.
