THE WORD
DES
Skippers

Thibaut: Offshore racing is a whole new adventure for me and the Normandy Channel Race is the starting point for a project that has been close to my heart for years. We wanted to add to the sporting challenge, an environmental component around an essential resource of the island of Reunion that I know well: wood! For each race, we set with my association, a goal of trees planted to reach. We hope to install 250 endemic trees in Reunion For this first stage. Through this project, I try of course to learn and to please myself, but also to raise awareness among the inhabitants of my island, its communities and its businesses around this environmental issue. I thank FREE DOM, the first radio station on the island of Reunion, who accompanies me on this wonderful adventure.
