Hot from the press

Just walked into town to pick up from the bookshop the book I had ordered. Am looking forward to read it.

Florence Arthaud, nicknamed “the little fiancée of the Atlantic”, born on 28 October 1957 in Boulogne-Billancourt and died on 9 March 2015 in Villa Castelli, Argentina, was a French sailor and the first woman to win the Route du Rhum, in 1990

Florence Arthaud died on Monday 9 March 2015 in a helicopter accident in Argentina during the filming of the TV show “Dropped”.

Thirty years later, with the agreement of Marie and Hubert, Florence Arthaud’s daughter and brother, this poignant declaration of love for the sea was finally published.
