A first idea of the trail...
First reactions :
« We didn't tell you the news ? We're leaving in a few months to sail across the Atlantic! »
We proudly said this many times now - to our families, our friends and colleagues (and soon to our banks, insurance, tax collectors...) Every time we got a different reaction. Here are some of those spontaneous messages...

Ophélie: " Keep us regularly up to date, I'll be worried to death ! Take enough food, buoys, flares and everything you need, right?"
Valérie: "This must be difficult to get back to normal everyday life after such a year"
Stéphanie: "So at least a year... but you should take 2 and do the nice trip around South America!!"
Laure's mother: " Look there, the big 45 feet... here it is what you should be sailing on, at least it is big enough !"
Karine: " And your career ? These Bretons are all the same... stubborn ! But actually you are totally right..."
Christian: "Well, abandoning your career like this, you have to carefully think about it, it will be hard to find a job afterwards..."
Camille's mother: "You can't leave without these very nice plastic plates with Breton pictures on them! " "By the way, where can we book for the Canaria Islands?"
BP's HR: « Could you contact me ASAP to explain! » - (yes I must admit, the beans were spilled in a pretty uncontrolled way...)
Laure's colleague from the customs office: "What, you're leaving already? But you just arrived?"
Thibaut: "Ah great... euh, do you have a satellite phone? No? Take mine then!"
Fred: No reaction, he is already gone sailing somewhere on the Indian ocean...
Saltimbanque's previous owners : "That would be nice if this boat could leave again..."
Lieven: « That's crazy !! that's crazy... I mean, that's great ! But that's crazy »
Johanna: « Well you are crazy! And I would be too much of a chicken to actually sail on an ocean, but I am still super jealous! »
Dietrich: "That would be safer to take a gun with you. Do you know where the pirates are?"
Romain: "I'm still super jealous. You know, normally it's 5 weeks holidays a year, not 16 months !!"
Gianni: "Just seen your career plan, its the best career move I've EVER seen, and I mean that seriously."
Annelise & Olivier: "We know two completly mad girls! But well, you have been dreaming about it for such a while..."
Sylvain: "But... but... you're taking only ONE computer for the TWO of you onboard ??!!"
Saltimbanque's cousins:
Only 31 « Brise de mer 28 » have been built, the family is rather small. We have identified a few of them while sailing the sea and the Internet. Please contact us to help completing our collection!
