1990 February the 1st, first Vendée Globe.
There is no limit at this time and I went down to 62 ° south. I even expected to keep going till 65 °
I spot a large and impressive tabular from a distance, my first iceberg.
Then the following day, ice is multiplying and I spend a second frightening night. At the beginning of this second night I take my first photo. (the one with the 2 small wind turbines) (Ref "Icy Moment 1")
The 3rd in the morning, after two full days without any sleep, I allow myself a nap. When I wake up, an iceberg is dead ahead, the light is superb. I hardly change the driver to move closer and I take 2 more pictures. (At this time we did not "shoot endlessly": it is films). With hindsight it was a little crazy to go so close because you never know the shape of the iceberg under water. When we know that 9/10 is not visible I could very well have hitten the keel with the submerged part of the iceberg. But it made it !
Today the race committee limit the descent towards the south and boats sail ten degrees northern.
