Who is Jérôme ?

Having been an instructor at the Glénans sailing school, the logical outcome for me in this adventure with accumulating many nautical miles and crews on board was to further professionalise myself by becoming a pro skipper. Before this, I was working another passion of mine as I was a graphic designer. What's the link between these two professions? The taste of beautiful things, the rigor required to accomplish the tasks performed, the idea of ​​providing happiness by listening attentively to the expectations of customers and team members today! This is my daily inspiration.

What is your motto ?

I am a skipper and instructor, passionate about boats, the sea, people on a boat at sea

Your sailing style ?

I sail according to what people want to do. My boat is the ideal support to adapt to different expectations: it is very comfortable, bright, and very well thought out! The marine qualities of this monohull model, which is still very coveted today, go without saying. It is extremely versatile, according to Jean-Luc Van Den Heede, holder of around the world sailing second from east to west in 2004 , who has one and does regattas on it in the Atlantic!

How do you handle the life on board ?

I explain, the crew participates in sailing manœuvres

How does shopping work?

I can stock up on supplies before departure, or the crew can do it, it is up to them.

How does cooking work?

I do not cook

How did you become skipper ?

Having been an instructor at the Glénans sailing school, the logical outcome for me in this adventure with accumulating many nautical miles and crews on board was to further professionalise myself by becoming a pro skipper. Before this, I was working another passion of mine as I was a graphic designer. What's the link between these two professions? The taste of beautiful things, the rigor required to accomplish the tasks performed, the idea of ​​providing happiness by listening attentively to the expectations of customers and team members today! This is my daily inspiration.

What people say about you?

It seems that I am attentive and good at explaining things and not always very well-groomed!

Your best cruise memory

Some people were able to tell me when boarding that they were not particularly attracted by boating, rather indifferent to the charms of sailing and were only there for their husband or to give their children a more original holiday. What pleases me the most is to help them discover the feeling of joy of being at the helm and the pleasure of setting sails! When this passion is passed on, the memory of this moment will remain one of the best forever! As well as this, I must confess that I've always admired the dolphins who come to play the bow wave coming from the boat!

In your opinion, what makes for a successful cruise ?

If people have a smile on their face at the end of their stay, then I have one too! We can always do better but I feel that I've accomplished my mission.

Your worst cruise memory ?

I can feel bad for some people who can not forget the worries of their daily life to such an extent that they are not willing to enjoy simple moments of life on board: breath-taking sunsets, swimming In crystal-clear waters, etc. I understand them but I honestly feel sorry for them.

The Skipper :Jérôme est sympa, très cool et didactique. On navigue exclusivement à la voile. Esther, sa compagne est très sympa, le seconde bien et s'occupe de l'avitaillement, de la préparation des repas et des charges de la cuisine. La cuisine est simple mais savoureuse avec quelques bonnes surprises. La gestion de la caisse de bord est transparente et nous sommes restés bien en dessous du budget de 14€/jour et /par personne annoncé. Le transfert à l'aéroport était en sus, mais comme on a récupéré de l'argent sur la caisse de bord, ça n'a pas posé de problème, nous sommes cool également.
