Fifteen teams were represented on Thursday 23 September in Paris for the first GLOBE40 project exchange meeting with the organization; projects officially registered or in advanced preparation, present in Paris or in videoconference for the most distant (USA, Canada, Holland, Denmark, Italy...), they marked the international scope that GLOBE40 took from the start with present today, among others, French, Russian, Moroccan and English skippers.

At 9 months from the start, the sporting advancement, the budget closing, the confirmation of the route allow us to look forward to the coming months with serenity as the health crisis seems to be receding.

A moment of emotion and the feeling shared by all of a great adventure that is beginning.
