Vendee Globe - President of the French Republic receives skippers
Tue, 9 Apr 2013
On Monday, April 8 at 12:30 pm, the President of the French Republic, François Hollande, received all of the Vendée Globe skippers and handed on this occasion the Chevalier de la Legion d'Honneur insignia to François Gabart, winner of this year's edition.
For Bruno Retailleau, President of the SAEM Vendée and present at the Elysée today: 'The ceremony was a great way to enhance the sporting and human values of exceptional men and women. The audacity and the dream they gave take every single French people in their wake'.
This recognition of the highest authorities of the State also shows the success and influence of the Vendée Globe. The Vendée Globe is at the top of the French sporting heritage and is one of the few events that make France pride internationally. It is an element of national pride that the Vendée is pleased to have been able to create.
