See images of the carbon bird amongst some sailing classics

Since the start of the week l’Hydroptère has been sailing off the shores of the Cote d’Azur, close to the classic fleet taking part in the Voiles de Saint-Tropez. (It is here where she performs the last leg of her 2010 European loop.)

The presence of the carbon bird among more traditional sailing boats has given spectators a wonderful show.
