Monsieur le Maire Dominique Petitqueux
Ville de Narbonne-Plage (France),

le 4 juin 2000

Discours de clôture du festival <<natur'ailes 2000 >>

Il nous a ému jusqu'aux larmes ;
Il est le plus grand d'entre tous ;
Il est le Prince de la gentillesse ;
Sa modestie en a fait le plus descret et le plus aimé des champions ;
Il est l'ambassadeur qui réunit les cervolistes du monde entier ;
C'est une institution et son porte-parole est le vent ;

La ville de Narbonne-Plage en fait aujourd'hui son citoyen d'honneur des "Natur'ailes 2000".

Ray, tu fais desormais partie des échos du vent en ce pays du vent. Lorsque nous l'écouterons, nous nous souviendrons de toi.

He moved us to tears;
He is the greatest among us;
He is the Prince of kindness;
His modesty made him the most unassuming and the most beloved of all champions,
He is the ambassador who brings together kite flyers from around the world;
He is an institution and his spokesman is the wind;

Today, the town of Narbonne-Plage is proud to declare him freeman of the "Natur'ailes 2000".

Ray, you are now part of the echoes of the wind in this country of the wind. When we will listen to it, we will remember you.
