    An Alo from Loick Peyron on his committing to Artemis Racing for AC35. Bitter sweet in a way because it means Peyron does not see a way to build a French AC35 challenge. It seems such a natural with the AC35 in multihulls for the French, who lead in multihull racing and cruising, to compete.

    Still fun to have Peyron in the America's Cup, a sign of the progress the America's Cup has made into the 21st century when the leading French multi huller thinks it's the place to be in sailing.

    Also liked the fact Peyron said "Back to San Francisco". The AC35 folks make polite comments about the venue being "open" but America's Cup belongs in San Francisco.
