Tuesday July 30th, together with the support of Fondation Cannes,  we organised a day trip for women in a situation of exclusion. The objective? to offer them a moment of freedom, away from their daily struggles, to help them build up their confidence, while simply making them enjoy the day. The objective was obviously reached, looking at the smiling faces showing at the end of the day. 

 

Twenty women supported by the association Parcours de Femmes in Cannes boarded 4myplanet and sailed in the bay of Cannes. In small groups, they sailed, crewed and helmed the boat. While a group was sailing with me and my boat captain Steven Jourdain, the other groups discovered, on Sainte Maguerite island, yoga and Qi Gong, thanks to professional coaches.
 

It was a first sail for all these women, but also a first on the island for some. They shared a great moment together, also with the teams at sea and on land. Very emotional moments, which changed their daily routine and reboosted them for a long time!
