What is your motto ?

Above all, we must have fun in life.

Your sailing style ?

I am an instructor so I can answer all your questions, and do all the manoeuvres, but I adapt to what my customers demand and I am of course able to move the boat alone…

How do you handle the life on board ?

I explain, the crew participates if they want to

How does shopping work?

I do not take care of supplies. The clients bring what is necessary or buy it

How does cooking work?

Everybody helps cooks

How did you become skipper ?

I have been sailing since the age of 5. I first passed my first sailing instructor diploma in liveaboard sail boating at the Glénans school at the age of 17, before becoming a professional skipper.

What people say about you?

I do not know what to ask them but from what I hear it seems that I am of a very enthusiastic, cool and friendly, always in a good mood and optimistic ...

Your best cruise memory

My two year cruise between Bandol and the Caribbean, two unforgettable trans-Atlantic races and two months spent in the Grenadines off season (to be done again)

In your opinion, what makes for a successful cruise ?

A successful cruise is one which leaves guests amazed

When you're not sailing...

I practice a lot of winter and endurance sports and a play the drums a little.
