Nicknamed the Everest of the Seas, the Vendée Globe is the only solo sailing race around the world without assistance. Eric Bellion is committed to this adventure alongside 14 patrons to raise awareness about his cause. A successful wager for COMMEUNSEULHOMME which, after 99 days at sea, becomes the public’s favorite and the 2nd most cited boat on social media. Eric leads his race by applying his 5 action principles, the foundation of COMMEUNSEULHOMME’s approach, and validates them by finishing 1st in the beginners’ category and 9th in the ranking.
