After Arnaud Boissières who was first official entry, Fabrice Amedeo is now the second solo skipper to have his entry completed for the next Vendée Globe.
Amedeo, the 41 year old journalist turned sailor, was already pre-selected as he, of course, finished the Vendée Globe 2016. Subsequently Fabrice qualified his new boat, which was previously the VPLP-Verdier designed No Way Back, when he finished last year’s solo Route du Rhum 2018.
So all that remained was to complete the administrative and medical details required and that was done before his start of the Transat Jacques Vabre.
His firm entry validates all of the continued efforts he has made since he finished 11th in the last Vendée Globe in 2016-2017. He has confirmed partnerships are complemented by his hard earned experience gained on each of the subsequent races he has competed in. Consequently his hopes of an improved result on the next race grow with each race completes.
At one year to go before the start, Amedeo’s registration is an important box ticked.
