The Vendée Globe, a sailing race around the world, without stopover, without assistance. A sort of “confinement” but on a boat. “I see the sea on a daily basis, currently, it is dark. I see the stars, a half-moon above me. Initiatives Cœur (his boat) is gliding well, we are between 15 and 20 knots of speed. hot, around 25 degrees in the cockpit so it’s pretty good conditions “, describes the British sailor.
Tenth overall in a group of six boats for the moment, were those the starting objectives? “It’s a great boat, Initiatives-Cœur is not a new boat, I am happy in this group. My other objective is also to save the children, it is the solidarity objective. I am also happy, sportingly. to be there, but the road is very, very long. I’m more into endurance without looking too much at the standings because we have to get around the planet “, admits Samantha Davies. She is currently the best ranked of the six women entered.
