How did you become skipper ?
I had the great fortune of being born on the banks of the Loire in March 1956. I then spent my childhood in Pornic in a unique and natural coastal environment. At the age of 16, finally, I discovered the charms of navigation and then, of course, boat racing. At 19, after completing my higher education, I bought my first racing boat, a Samouraï. Then I met some great sailors in Brest where I worked as a sailing instructor. With them, I sensed in myself the spirit of an open sea navigator. In sail ships, I have navigated full time for 10 years, first of all for my own pleasure, and for the most part on large vessels both in races and on cruises.
In your opinion, what makes for a successful cruise ?
When the conditions were good and everyone had a good time at sea!
When you're not sailing...
Anecdotally, I am very fortunate to have been able to use my talents as a cameraman and photographer all over the world. JO of Barcelona, the World championships in Singapore, the Transat with Fleury Michon, with assistance from Figaro and the Tour de France à la Voile!
