October 2012 MAINE COASTAL NEWS Page 9. Waterfront News Update on the 7th Vendee Globe - 20 Competitors to Start Twenty yachtsmen will be at the start
edition of the Vendée Globe on November 10 in Les Sables d’Olonne. The fi nal entrants list has been unveiled at Paris’ Maison de la Mutualité by Vendée General Council President Bruno Retailleau. The list includes Zbigniew Gutkowski, the last entrant and the fi rst Polish skipper to take up the single-handed non-stop round-the-world challenge without any assistance. The 2012-2013 Vendée Globe passes
of the 7th
with honors! With less than 50 days to go until the world’s greatest solo yachting race starts, the names of the twenty candidates for Michel Desjoyeaux’s succession have been offi cially announced on Wednesday.
Twenty is a perfect number, one that is actu- ally exceptional given the current economic context, and consistent with the average number of Vendée Globe competitors in the previous six editions. “This year, the Vendée is bringing a truly exceptional crew on board, enthusi- astically explains Bruno Retailleau. Up- and-coming sailors of the new generation will do their best to vie with older master mariners in a sea battle between traditional and modern yachtsmen that promises epic fi ghts” This exceptionally international fl eet (featuring sailors of six different nationali- ties) is strengthened by Poland’s Zbigniew Gutkowski.

As the last skipper to register, Zbigniew « Gutek » Gutkowski, 39 and supported by electricity producer and operator ENER- GA, has become the fi rst Pole to compete in the Vendée Globe. He had also been the fi rst Polish skipper to single-handedly sail around the world and fi nished second of last year’s Velux 5 Oceans race. His peers voted him Polish Yachtsman of the year. « I’m very proud to be part of this adventure and fi nishing under 100 days would make me really happy », said « Gutek”. Before coming to the Village in Les Sa- bles d’Olonne, starting on October 20, and fi nding out more about the twenty skippers, sailing enthusiasts can already follow the skippers’ preparation as they enter the home stretch by visiting the new Vendée Vendée Globe website as well as the race’s social
networks. It should help them wait until the release of the offi cial book (October 17), the comic book (October 19), the fi lm « En Sol- itaire » (fall of 2013) and the 2012 Vendée Globe application, available on November 1 on iPhone / iPad and Android / Tablet through the Apple Store and the Google Play Store… “Millions of fans will be able to follow the race without missing a single thing, emphasises Bruno Retailleau. A larger Village featuring more fun and educational activities, on board cameras to share the skippers’ daily lives in real time, a great social network effort, images broadcast in 170 countries… With 3D and 2.0, the latest technologies are more than ever contribut- ing to the development of the human side of the adventure.
