TWO GOLDEN YOUNG GIRLS

This morning in the village of the Volvo Ocean Race, Camille Lecointre and Mathilde Géron who will represent France at the OG of Weymouth, have just disembarked from their 470 to pay a visit to the crews of the Volvo.

And here are two young women who are not afraid to say what they think. When you ask them if they dream of going on board of a VO70, the answer is no. It is not because they do not feel like it, but because of the strong physical efforts required. It is a quite recurrent regret. As boats get more and more technical, they get more and more physical too. Anyway this point is far from their actual main concern. In a few weeks indeed, they will have to fight to earn a widely deserved medal. Since four years, Mathilde and Camille have learnt to know each other and they have found the best balance between mutual trust and privacy. 

Everyday life is about hours of training, physical preparation and media obligations. A schedule that did not allow them to go on board the VO70 as guests during Practice Day… « But we intend to visit at least one of them when tey will be back from training… » Hoping that one day maybe the world of sailing might give to women the position they deserve on board.  «It is one of the little advantage when we sail with a crew : the physically easiest posts, the helm and the tactics are far from being the less attractives ones… »
