“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.
