Sam Davies, his team and his partners experienced a moving moment, on the occasion of the baptism of the Imoca Initiatives-Coeur yesterday in Saint-Malo.
There were beautiful people alongside the navigator.
In addition to Thomas Pesquet and La Sablaise Nathalie Renoux, journalist from Groupe M6, actor François Damiens was also present, as well as Youtubers Major Mouvement, Jujufitcats and Tiboinshape.
It is a human adventure project, a sporting project of self-transcendence, while going to the aid of children. 347 children saved since the beginning, it’s magnificent! It was a moving baptism. There were a lot of people, even on the ramparts, which is to say if this project brings together a large audience.
The daughter of Monique and Jean Renoux, the founder of the Camino de l’Espoir, was already godmother of Sam Davies’ boat since the 1er November 2014.
Lamazou, the skipper turned artist
Titouan Lamazou, the first winner of the Vendée Globe, gave Sam a frame of the portrait of little Naylah that he made himself and which adorns the mainsail.
With Diby, 8 years old
The device was a little special. The godfather and godmother did not break the traditional bottle of champagne.
It is a young child saved by Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque, Diby, 8 years old and from Mali, who symbolically broke a balloon filled with water on the boat.
It should be noted that even before the start of the race, 5 children have already been saved, the objective being to bring this figure to 20 at the end of the Route du Rhum.
