Back to Virus in Action!
Turbo Skiff going through the surf, heading for open water. Designed to
be self bailing, fast, and stable, it offers excellent open-water performance.
Rowing in the Gulf of Mexico.
Vogin of France rowed with his pet monkey from Dakkar Senegal, West
Africa to Cape Verde Islands in the Atlantic. Vogin rowed in a Yole Club
fresh off the production line. He made no alterations to the boat, only
a canopy for his pet monkey and an extra pair of oars.
Distance: 150 nautical miles which converts to 450 nautical miles
rowed due to drift during resting hours.
Time on water: 11 days
The Yole is a great boat in open water. Very stable and self bailing.
