Transat Jacques Vabre: for Thomas Rettant, much more than a sporting victory


LinkedOut is the first Imoca to cross the finish line in Fort-de-France this Thursday. A victory all the more important as Thoma

If he did not realize his dream of winning the Vendée Globe last year, Thomas Rettant, partner in the Jacques Vabre transatlantic with Morgan Lagravière, won in the Imoca category (60-foot monohulls), after 18 days at sea. The face reddened by the sun - "never have we spent so much time at sea in these tropical latitudes", notes the Northerner - Thomas Rettant highlights his project "the race for change", which allows you to distribute the CVs of unemployed people.

“It is a victory for Thomas and Morgan, for the partners but also for the candidates to return to work, these hundreds of people who have had a difficult life course and who will be highlighted thanks to this success.

»Alexandre Fayeulle, the president of Advens, the main sponsor of Thomas Rouillard does not hide his satisfaction.

HAPPINESS 🤩 well done @ThomasRouillard @ 444_Morgan @advens @LinkedOut #TransatJacquesVabre

In 2016, “by a stroke of heart for the sailor and the Vendée Globe”, his company specializing in cybersecurity embarked on ocean racing.

By offering the name of the boat and incredible visibility to LinkedOut, a community that encourages social inclusion by highlighting the CVs of people in precariousness and far from employment.

150 candidates have found a permanent contract

The solo round-the-world tour of Thomas Rettant last year (he finished sixth in the Vendée Globe) enabled 150 candidates to find a permanent contract. 400 companies have signed up with LinkedOut. “Today, companies need to give meaning to their projects, LinkedOut allows them to find simple solutions to achieve inclusion. Thomas Rettant circulates CVs on the pontoons, creates meetings between candidates and companies likely to hire them.

"Some candidates had never seen the sea, sailing is far from their daily lives, but we have launched a virtuous model thanks to this incredible lever that is ocean racing," says Alexandre Fayeulle.

These people are generally excluded from society, participating in a winning sailing race project gives them a boost.

They know that with LinkedOut, they are in good hands.


Unlike other sponsors, Advens' name does not appear on the hull of the boat or on the mast.

“What we lose in line of sight, we gain in pride,” assures Alexandre Fayeulle.

I wanted to give meaning to sponsorship, this partnership gives a positive image of the company and creates an economic and societal impact.
