From Saint-Malo, Benjamin Dutreux certainly had no idea that he was going to experience a tough arrival in Guadeloupe. Indeed, 24 hours from the arrival in Pointe-à-Pitre, he was surprised by a squall before his nap. He got up in a hurry to go and lower his sails and he slipped.
He hurt himself, which handicapped him a lot for the end of the race, resulting in particular in a final morning of navigation, almost in slow motion.
Despite everything, the adopted Vendéen finished the race this Tuesday, November 22 at 2:06 p.m. Paris time, after 12 days, 23 hours, 51 minutes and 24 seconds.
Benjamin Dutreux was taken care of by the race doctor as soon as he crossed the finish line. He must be examined at the Pointe-à-Pitre hospital to assess the severity of his injuries.
