VINCI Energies becomes sponsor of Initiatives-Cœur

Initiatives-Cœur will now be able to count on the financial engagement of VINCI Energies for four years, alongside its two main sponsors, Initiatives and K-LINE. VINCI Energies will bring to the team the means to improve the monohull's performance. This new partnership will strengthen the InitiativesCœur project and, by the same token, its outreach objective, which is to work alongside Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque to save even more children who cannot be operated on in their own country. "It's a joy to see VINCI Energies join in this magnificent adventure. I'm sure that the 64,500 employees will be blowing hard on Sam and Tanguy's sails to help us save even more children. The children of the world need all this positive energy" - Orso Chetochine, Director of Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque.

“Sponsoring is first and foremost a partnership – a human adventure that cannot be conceived without sharing strong common values. This is why we decided that VINCI Energies would support this project, because it is impelled  both by a desire for sports excellence and a humanitarian ambition – to save the lives of children suffering from heart malformations. We are joining a team and partners who have already written a wonderful story, which we hope to pursue and make even stronger, together. Taking action, daring, perseverance, generosity and outreach are the values of Initiatives-Cœur in association with Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque, embodied by Sam Davies and Tanguy de Lamotte. These values resonate with us because they are those of our Group. For all these reasons, we are very honoured to be the new partner in such a splendid adventure”. – Yves Meignié, Chairman & CEO, VINCI Energies.



For his last race, Tanguy de Lamotte will be on the starting line of the Transat Jacques Vabre on 5 November this year, in the company of Sam Davies, for a legendary two-skipper transatlantic race that will take them from Le Havre to Bahia in Brazil.
