Back to list Zoom

On the initiative of the Senate women's rights delegation, the Upper House of Parliament welcomed the women skippers of the Vendée Globe 2020-2021 yesterday. Alexia Barrier, Clarisse Cremer, Pip Hare, Miranda Merron, Isabelle Joschke and Samantha Davies were able to meet with the Senators of the Republic. This meeting was organized by Annick Billon, Senator of Vendée and President of the Delegation. The skippers were thus able to discuss the place of women in the world of professional sailing, solo and in crew, as well as the commitment of these sportswomen in favor of diversity and equality.
