Andrea & Yvon LE CAER - 1981
CYCLING FROM A BYGONE ERA!
... Nowadays, they don't do that anymore.
Yet, it was a fantastic test of skills and will,
... at a time when the true spirit of Sport prevailed

LOSING TO THE WEATHER IN 1983
Let's listen to Yvon Le Caer on this subject:
"Before succeeding in 1985, I once failed across the Channel, losing not only to the weather and the seas, but also, unexpectedly, to... my escort vessel(!) which "sliced"
4 feet off the front-end of AquaCycle. All of this, in the middle of the Channel,
middle of the night, and....on my 22nd wedding anniversary, October 23, 1983.
Quite a night to remember, isn't it?"
