IMOCA Open 60 – Vendée Globe 2010/21 – Samantha Davis GBR, a film portrait

Next November, Samantha Davis GBR will start to the Vendée Globe for the third time. With her foiling IMOCA Open 60 Initiatives des Coeurs, she is among the co-favorites, as demonstrated in the various Open 60 regattas during the past months. She started her offshore career at the age of 24 onboard of Tracy Edwards GBR trimaran Maiden in a Jules Verne Trophy around the world record attempt, which ended with a broken mast in the Roaring Forties. After successes in the one-hand class Bénéteau Figaro, she finished her first Vendée Globe 2008 in 4th place. With 3 Vendée participations and a Volvo Ocean Race, she is now one of the most experienced skippers in the one-hand offshore circuit. —– A 52-minute film portrait.
