Arnaud Boissieres makes Landfall

Strictly black tie for Arnaud Boissieres who, following the 007 theme of having finished seventh in the last Transat Jacques Vabre, seventh in the Route du Rhum, seventh in the last Vendee Globe and seventh in the Artemis Transat . . . but this time in the Vendee Globe he was eighth . . . 008, anyone? “I was only seven places away from winning the Vendée Globe. There is something wonderful about this race, what ever your place is, you win something with this race. When you see all the people here for me, it’s wonderful.”
