After the incident yesterday on the start of the Route du Rhum, Sam is back home today!

He warmly thanks the people involved in the management of the incident, the organisation of the Route du Rhum – Destination Guadeloupe, the CROSS, the SNSM, the civil security and also especially the team of the hospital center of Saint-Malo.

He was also very touched by the messages of support from all our followers!

With the whole Leyton team, Sam had been preparing for this deadline for more than two years. He was a favourite. The technical team has invested a lot so that he can start the race in the best conditions.

The abandonment of this race is a huge disappointment for him but he shows extraordinary strength. He is the one who helps his whole team to raise their heads.

He has received a lot of support in the last 24 hours and will take a few days off before devoting himself to the rest of his projects. Sam and the entire Leyton group wish the sailors a very good race on their way to Guadeloupe.
