An olive branch

Scuttlebutt is an english publication, and its editor was subject to the American educational system that spent very little time motivating its students to learn other languages. So when it comes to French yachting, where the communications typically are only in the French language, I am subject to the choppy translation tools available online (read: I'm screwed).

This email today caught my eye:

The Race Organisation of the Global Ocean Race 2011-12 can now confirm that the French language side of the event's website is fully operational. Over the next few weeks, important announcements regarding the Global Ocean Race will be uploaded to the site in English and French.

Maybe this is a sign for the French... call it an olive branch... and that there will be more cooperation in the future.

I'm glad that the French wish to publisize their wild racing beyond the "vale des fous".
