From a young age, the Belgian skipper Denis Van Weynbergh has dreamed of participating in the Vendée Globe, a single-handed non-stop sailing race, without assistance, around the world on a 60-foot sailboat.
To finance his participation in the Vendée Globe, Denis has thought of an original communication concept: the “EYESEA” project.
