Departure Day - Nov. 9, 2008

Rich and the rest of the Vendee Globe fleet sailed out of Les Sables d'Olonne and began the race around the world. Rich was excited and ready to go, but he was also a little sad to leave friends and family behind. Still, he is focused and ready for the race! The last image is a picture of some of the boats after the race started.
