An LSVT Graduate on board the Neptune for the Ocean Globe Race 2023

The Ocean Globe Race will set sail on September 10th, 2023, with 14 teams from around the world. The race begins from Southampton, England and will continue for 7 months through 3 ports of call: Cape Town, South Africa, Auckland, New Zealand and Punta del Este, Uruguay. 

There is one team that is very special to us at LSVT aboard the Neptune sailboat. Our connection is through one of the sailors, Bertrand Delhom, who has Parkinson’s disease.

While in Vannes, France in December of 2022, we had the incredible joy of meeting Bertrand and some of his team when he volunteered for our LSVT LOUD and LSVT BIG Training and Certification Courses. Although we speak different languages, his passion for this sailing mission and his determination to get his body and his voice into tip top shape was clear. 

Read more about Bertrand and his mission in these wonderful articles:

We at LSVT Global wish Bertrand and the rest of the Neptune’s crew good luck and good health as they take on this amazing adventure. Keep thinking BIG and LOUD Bertrand!
