Loony Frenchman - perfect for the Great Oikney Expedition!

Here is the translation:

The INCREDIBLE TRAVERSEE By Patrick BERTRAND Theoretically, in full possession of its mental faculties. Tuesday 1ér April 2003, I have just received my new tire. It is one To explore 200. Even flat, it is already a superb animal. Immediately, I start the preparations. It is 11h00. Many crowd came to see of readier. 11h45 It is finally inflated, ready to be motorized. The crossing having to be "hardware" I chose the maximum motorization. I took the KRUPS models F It is firmly fixed on the back table. I also pose a console with trunk seals below. Sounder, VHF, GPS, Tools complete, nothing miss. It is 12h00 when I announce with the PC race (on the left) my departure. The weather is good, the crew is serene, to see merry. When suddenly... It is the CATA, a vital accessory passed over edge. I lost my bonnet!!!! I even act in concert with me... I decide to continue nevertheless. My speed is such as I do not see already more the bonnet with far. Snif. 12h04, It is incredible, the record of the crossing of the dining room is beaten of more than... nothing Ca had never been tried before me, I méga-signal-super proud of me. Whereas we see on starboard crowd even more than at the beginning, to mass between the workshops where my boat will be entirely revised. It was Patrick on line of the dining room. At the next year for the crossing of the corridor of the rooms.
