After the rescue of Kevin Escoffier by Jean Le Cam, the Franco-Swiss sailor Yvan Bourgnon paid a vibrant - and hot - tribute to the sailors of the Vendée Globe.
“What a joy to have recovered Kevin and what extraordinary behavior to have been able to reach his life raft underwater, to have had the right gestures down to the second for his survival.
If you are looking for real adventurers, there you have it for your rank, no need to look elsewhere! ”Wrote on Facebook the brother of the late Laurent Bourgnon, believing that this act of collective bravery would have deserved more echoes.
“They (Escoffier and Le Cam) have both just written one of the most beautiful story of human adventure on water and almost in the total indifference of the general public… Stop watching your stupid reality TV and biased news channels and follow these great sailors.
They give us the best lesson in life that we can have. ”
