Who is Lionel ?

Set sail with Lionel, a professional skipper from 27 years and let's discover his passion for sailing and French Riviera !

What is your motto ?

Sea is the last space for freedom

Your sailing style ?

Respect and sharing. I try to communicate my sailing passion but each one is free !

How do you handle the life on board ?

I explain, the crew participates if they want to

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?

Everybody helps cooks

How did you become skipper ?

I have bought my first little boat when I was 8. From then, I lived many experiences and met a lot of people. I worked as a commercial then at 40, I drop everything and I decided to sail all the time !

What people say about you?

People say I'm friendly and serious

Your best cruise memory

Croisières de Guerrières 2011 et 2012, ou comment devenir ami avec son idole, Florence Arthaud ! J’ai en effet accompagné 2 ans de suite une croisière destinée aux jeunes femmes anorexiques, en duo avec elle.

Your worst cruise memory ?

Histoire d’en trouver un (pas franchement de pire souvenir), je dirais un coup de vent sévère sur un retour de Tunisie.
