How did you become skipper ?

I was born in Saint-Malo 49 years ago, so the sea and sails have always been part of my world. I have had a varied career from the family yacht to the sailing school on the Glénan Islands, from voluntary work to humanitarian aid, all of which has brought me great experience. In 2008, after sixteen years in teaching and social work, I decided to turn my passion into my profession, created my own business and became a professional skipper and sailing instructor.

Today, I am eager to share what I know, my experiences and the pleasure of life at sea.

Your best cruise memory

A 5-month cruise with my wife and 1-year-old son in the Caribbean – it was an unforgettable experience, deeply ingrained in our memories.

In your opinion, what makes for a successful cruise ?

Great camaraderie! Warm encounters! Amazing scenery and a relaxed crew.

Your worst cruise memory ?

We met a killer whale crossing the Atlantic and it swam around the boat a bit too long for our like.

(5/5)

The Skipper :Jean-Luc est un super pro & pédagogue. Il a à coeur de partage sa connaissance et sa passion pour la voile. Jean-Luc connait très bien la Corse ; Un point d'attention : clarté & transparence sur le fonctionnement de la caisse de bord en début de séjour (frais fixes/variables + quôte part sur un fond d'avitaillement commun).

(5/5)

The Skipper :Jean-Luc a été top tout au long de la croisiere. Très pédagogue, il nous a initié aux manœuvres, était à l'écoute des attentes du groupe qu'il a managé d'une main de maître et ce, sans oublier la convivialité et la bonne humeur (apéro et musique de rigueur sur le voilier 😉). On s'est tous très bien entendu et bien amusé à bord !
