Dominique may have been hoping for a relaxed, gentle passage into Les Sables d’Olonne, but he has another thing coming. The Bay of Biscay is living up to its reputation and conditions are forecast to give the Swiss sailor a rough ride into the finish!
“After a lull while I make my way around the Azores High, the wind is going to fill in from the north west and my Bay of Biscay crossing is going to be absolutely freezing and pretty brutal!” said Dominique.
He will sail a fast reach home to a hero’s welcome from his sponsor Mirabaud who is sending a delegation to great him. This welcoming committee will be further boosted by supporters from the Société Nautique de Genève and his fellow Mirabaud team mates.
If conditions allow, the welcoming party will go out to the finish line on a boat and will accompany Dominique as he motors along the Port Olona channel to his final destination in the harbour of Les Sables d’Olonne. It will be quite a celebration!
