Vendée Globe for Damien Seguin

Vendée Globe: one hand, and no limit....

Tomorrow, Damien Seguin, skipper born without a left hand, will set sail for the Vendée Globe: the Grail of all sailors, his dream as a kid. He thus became the first handisportive to participate in this solo round-the-world trip.

"I will be the first handisport skipper to take part in this round-the-world trip solo, non-stop and unassisted, it's a real pride," the 41-year-old skipper told AFP, while working on his boat, Apicil Group, a monohull of the Imoca class.

Blades of Joy

Berck on the sea, a new record in Jolette.

A great initiative of the "Blades of Joy" association. A day in Jolette to raise awareness.
A kind of single-seat chair suitable for the race allowing a fundraiser to help amputee children.
In mid-September, eight children, pushed by twelve volunteer athletes, left the Berck-sur-Mer (Pas-de-Calais), taking the baton for 24 hours, completing a staggering distance of 264 kilometres. A new record.
