Sam Davies will enter the channel back into Les Sables d'Olonne very early this afternoon, around 1215hrs UTC (1315hrs local time) and is expected to get a warm welcome for her remarkable solo round the world achievment which she completed last night. As she waited for daylight and today's tide to fully enjoy the moment Sam Davies had not been idle. In an initiative which is typical of the English skipper she spent last night scribing a giant heart with the wake of her Initiatives Coeur on the waters off Les Sables d'Olonne. 

After being forced to abandon her race on 5th December because of damage caused by a vioilent collision with a submerged object, Sam restarted out of Cape Town ten days later after repairing her boat and last night completed her solo passage back to Les Sables d'Olonne.
