Tour de France à la Voile results competition in Nice

The curtains fell on the Tour de France Sailing on what remains perhaps as one of the finest shows of the 21 days of competition. At 13:00, the wind blew up strong on the Bay of Angels and the first races have been launched in a rough sea with boats making their bows smoking. In these crazy circumstances, Damien, George and Lois kept a nice sixth place in the first qualifying heat but the day canceled for security reasons. Within minutes, a boat turned (Engie / Sébastien Rogues) and a man fell into the sea, it was enough for the race director to order to the 28 competitors to return safely to the Old Port of Nice. The day was canceled in Nice because of strong wind. It was a positive balance for the first commitment to sailing.

So, yesterday the ranking was authentic and provided the coronation at Spindrift while Groupama and Combiwest completed this beautiful podium. FDJ Foundation - Foot and Hand retains 19th place and skipper, Damien Seguin, does not hide that he would liked to do better. "In sporting terms, it was not reached the goal we had set. We'll debrief of it quickly, "he explains. The purpose of the project was also to change attitudes towards disability and the social dimension is a success. All crossed cities received equipment (Tiralo) to enable people with disabilities to access the sea and more than 50 baptisms were made possible with the support of Foot and Hand. "We hope to have created many desire and it may be future champions we did made sailing" concludes Stéphane Pallez, President of FDJ, came to support his team, now in Nice.
