Now, the main sponsor 'Apicil' decided to prolongate his support and Séguin can plan to participate in the Vendée Globe as first disabled sailor. Born with only one hand, he mastered all sailing challenges so far, and for the forthcoming round-the-world adventure, the only modification at the Open 60 will be a special glove to allow him to handle the winch with both arms.
