In his latest video diary from the Tour de France, Paul Kimmage joins 2,000 other journalists aboard a ferry that serves as the press centre for the opening stages of the great race.

Currently docked at a port in Corsica, the ferry will travel around the island to serve the media as they follow the 100th edition of the Tour before it moves back to mainland France.

The race starts tomorrow and will criss-cross France before finishing in Paris on Sunday, July 21.
