Samantha Davies came into the limelight with her 2008-2009 single-handed circumnavigation in the Vendée Globe race, where she placed fourth. She was the third to cross the finish line, but owed a time allowance of 50 Hr to competitor Marc Guillemot, who crossed the line 48:40' after her. The time allowance was applied following both competitors' diversion to assist injured skipper Yann Eliès, but Marc Guillemot benefited from a larger handicap because of his forward position in the race.[2] Her abundant and lively video footage during the race caused a media and audience frenzy that dubbed her "la petite anglaise".[citation needed][3] Davis trains at "Pôle France, Finistère Course au Large" in Port-La-Forêt Samantha Davies came into the limelight with her 2008-2009 single-handed circumnavigation in the Vendée Globe race, where she placed fourth.

Arrivée de Samantha Davies et Savéol aux Sables d'Olonne - Vendée Globe 2012 2013

Plus de 15 000 personnes amassées de chaque côté de la fameuse jetée, 60 bateaux sur l'eau : le retour prématuré de Sam et Jérémie sur les pontons de Port Olona avait des airs d'arrivée victorieuse ! Une remontée du chenal particulièrement émouvante suivie d'un accueil très chaleureux qui a visiblement touché les deux skippers. La preuve en images...
