Thomas Lurton and his boat “Moxi” are ready for departure on Sunday 6 November at 13:02 to a Guadeloupe destination! The skipper, originally from Saint-Pierre-Quiberon, is in Saint-Malo to participate in the Route du Rhum.
More than a few days, and even rather a few hours before returns.
“I live every moment intensely”
The pressure is mounting for Thomas Lurton. On the Saint-Malo pontoons, the crowd is very numerous. France 3 journalists came to meet the young Saint-Pierrois. Both interviews are online on the sailor’s social network. The evening with the presentation of the 138 skippers on the stage in Saint-Malo was a highlight. “I live every moment intensely,” he explains.
With his father, Hervé Lurton, who will be the router, an essential function for the strategic choices of such a race, it is time for the final adjustments. “The transmission of knowledge was the core of the project. I have a whole team with me. It takes the pressure off me. Standing on the starting line is already a big victory”.
