How did you become skipper ?
I have been sailing since the age of 6 (optimistic) then I started a competition course: sport study, France junior team then sailing coach. I bought my first cruise ship in 1981. Then I had 6 other boats, getting bigger and bigger, up to this one today. After crossing the Atlantic as a crewman, I've done this twice more, as a skipper and owner.
In 2014, I skippered a catamaran day boat in Corsica to Lavezzi.
What people say about you?
Rather nice, friendly, dynamic, attentive and a bon vivant
Your best cruise memory
Sailing with whales in the Canary Islands.
In your opinion, what makes for a successful cruise ?
When everyone wants to do it all over again after having so many unforgettable feelings and seeing so many images!
