Sounds awful but tasted good


After the Cervantes Trophy race from Cowes to Le Havre last weekend, we booked lunch the following day at the Société des Régates du Havre, our hosts and organisers of the return race, Trophée Guillaume le Conquerant.

In order to give les rosbifs, notoriously monoglot, some idea of what to order, the menu was run through babelfish, google or some such internet translation tool. Had the results been deliberate, it would have been comedic genius. As it is, it’s just very amusing. Despite it dubious billing, the food was delicious.
