After an inclusive round-the-world trip on Kifouine between 2003 and 2006, a sailing record between Brittany and Mauritius with the Integration Challenge in 2010, then a year spent with Team Jolokia in 2012, Éric Bellion set sail in 2016 on the Vendée Globe to promote a message about the richness of diversity.
He finished ninth and, first rookie, after 99 days and said at the finish that "doing and experiencing different things with different people, that's where happiness lies."
Four years later, Éric Bellion decided to return to the famous round-the-world race with this same message and decided to make the world's most solitary competition a collective adventure by creating a groupe.
Still flying the flag of CommeUnSeulHomme, and supported by the company Altavia, the sailor will take part in all the races that make up the IMOCA Globe Series from 2022 aboard Hubert (Jean Le Cam's IMOCA), then aboard a new IMOCA from 2023.
