Twenty years ago, we entered the Vendée Globe, this legendary race as a shipowner alongside Thomas Coville. Then in 2004, we went on to become an official sponsor of the race.  Each edition is unique and illustrates the incredible evolution of the world of ocean racing, which has never stopped progressing. You only have to look at the evolution of the boats to understand that we have moved into a new era with each edition, but there is room for everyone. What is common are the stories of these men and women who commit themselves to an adventure that will inevitably change them.
