The solo skippers of the Vendée Arctique celebrate their success and are honoured by the public

Les Sables d'Olonne put together all of the key ingredients to honour the solo skippers of the second edition of the Vendée Arctique Les Sables. The public turned out in significant numbers to greet the skippers and mark their endeavours. They shouted and cheered for all 20 of the sailors who turned out in Les Sables d'Olonne. and the skippers clearly enjoyed getting back together, sharing their experiences of an eventful, tough race and to greet the Vendée public.
