The dock in Les Sables d'Olonne, France

Tens of thousands of people have visited the Vendee Globe boats since they opened the Vendee Village to the public. The sailors who are preparing themselves and their cutting-edge boats are celebrities, and lots of people want to talk to them--and Skipper Rich is no exception. He has at least one interview with a newspaper, radio station, or television station every day, and that keeps him very busy!
