Alessandro di Benedetto

Yes, he was received as a winner and the movie is the last one. First have a look at this one. It seems that the school kids of an old mountain village of France (Orthez) had made him their hero and were following the race. They made a movie, don't miss it

Seeing this movie I remember that François Gabard (the winner) said that he dreamed to won the Vendee Globe since he had 7 years old. Who knows if among those kids will not be a future solo racer and maybe a Vendee Globe winner. One thing is for sure. Sailing is popular in France, even for kids in Orthez in the middle of the Pyrenees.
