Jacques Vabre Transatlantic: A big-hearted race for skipper duo Davies-Meilhat
Issued on: Modified:
The Jacques Vabre Transatlantic race begins on Sunday, October 27. Leaving the French port town of Le Havre, 118 skippers aboard 59 yachts will take part in this two-handed race to the Brazilian city of Salvador de Bahia. We met one such duo: Samantha Davies and Paul Meilhat. They'll be competing for victory, but also for a good cause: helping provide heart surgery to children in need. Our team reports.
