Route du Rhum – Carnet de Bord

Fabrice Amedeo, le Levalloisien de l’Atlantique

CLASS 40 SNCF GEODIS - NEWREST - FABRICE AMEDEO - 2014En arrivant 9ème de la dernière Route du Rhum, le skipper amateur levalloisien Fabrice Amedeo, également journaliste au Figaro, a démontré qu’il pouvait rivaliser avec les meilleurs marins de la catégorie des Class 40, arborant fièrement son spi aux armes de Levallois. Carnet de Route d’un véritable exploit.

Alors qu’il s’éloignait des côtes de Saint- Malo, le 2 novembre dernier, Fabrice Amedeo n’avait certainement pas idée de l’incroyable performance qu’il allait réaliser sur cette 10ème Route du Rhum. “Je partais plutôt pour terminer dans les 20 premiers et, en cas de très bonne surprise, dans les 15 premiers”, précise t-il.
Et, ce n’est pas son “médiocre départ” qui allait laisser augurer de lendemains rayonnants. “J’étais en colère à cause de mon début de course. Pour ne rien arranger, nous avons pris un front la première nuit. Une dépression avec des bascules de vents de 70 km/h, de la grêle, des éclairs… Mon tuyau de ballast a lâché et 500 litres d’eau se sont échappés dans le bateau. J’ai passé une partie de la nuit à écoper. Le plus embêtant, c’est que l’eau m’a amputé d’un tiers de ma nourriture pour la transat. J’ai perdu toutes mes réserves fraiches, le pain, le jambon, le fromage”.
Le lundi matin, soit une journée après le départ, les dégâts sont lourds sur le SNCF Geodis – Newrest et les problèmes électroniques majeurs. “Je n’ai plus de système AIS, qui permet de repérer les cargos. Je parle avec mon attaché de presse, lui explique que c’est un cauchemar, qu’il va falloir que j’abandonne. Il me répond que non, que je suis 18ème sur 43, et que la nuit a été dure pour tout le monde”. Au niveau du Cap Finisterre, à l’ouest de la Galice, Fabrice décide de continuer. Les vents de Gascogne le portent. “Tout devient fluide. Plus j’ai de problèmes techniques, moins j’ai envie d’arrêter. Je me sens fort. Je reviens sur la tête de flotte pour ne plus jamais la lâcher”.

Fierté et blessure !
Fabrice Amedeo enchaîne les prouesses physiques et mentales. Il est sur tous les ponts. Alors qu’il est sujet au vertige, il grimpe seul en tête de mât, où il reste en suspension à 17 mètres de haut, afin de démêler sa voile de l’étai. C’est la métamorphose du poète en skipper. “C’est la première fois de ma vie que je navigue en compétiteur et non en journaliste amoureux de la mer et des bateaux”.
6ème à la mi-course, le Levalloisien l’est toujours en arrivant à la Guadeloupe. Malheureusement, il connaît une nouvelle mésaventure avec sa voile : “J’étais très affaibli, je ne me suis pas senti la force de remonter sur le mât. Je n’avais presque plus de nourriture et je buvais le strict minimum d’eau depuis une semaine. Je faisais même bouillir mes plats lyophilisés à l’eau de mer. J’ai donc préféré demander l’assistance technique d’une équipe à Basse-Terre, ce qui rend obligatoire une escale de 4 heures”. Amedeo boucle finalement cette 10ème édition de la Route du Rhum à la 9ème place en 18 jours, 09 heures, 36 minutes et 32 secondes. “L’arrivée reste un super moment. J’étais beaucoup plus épuisé qu’en 2010, où j’avais terminé 26ème . Durant les dernières 24 heures, je n’avais fait que quatre siestes de 40 minutes. J’ai réduit la toile pour arriver plus lentement et savourer. J’entendais des “bravo Fabrice, bravo papa”. C’était exceptionnel. Je suis fier de ce que j’ai réalisé. En entrant dans le top 10 des Class 40, le regard des autres skippers a un peu changé. Aujourd’hui, je suis entré dans la famille, sourit-il. Mais, c’est vrai que cette 9ème place, alors que j’ai occupé la 6ème position pratiquement jusqu’au bout, reste une petite blessure au fond de mon coeur”.
Depuis son retour en métropole, Amedeo n’a qu’une chose en tête, le Vendée Globe 2016, l’Everest des mers. Pour y participer, il devra notamment “troquer” son 40 pieds pour un Imoca de 60 (18,60 m). Et, si rien n’est encore signé auprès d’éventuels partenaires, les vents semblent déjà très favorables..
