Who is Pierre ?

A skipper since a young age, Pierre has never left the sea. Embark on a cruise in Brittany alongside an experienced skipper and who knows, with a little luck you'll share a fish caught during the day!

What is your motto ?

Imagination is at the beginning something real

Your sailing style ?

Sailing requires you to be fully aware of the surrounding environment so you can easy reconfigure the settings if needed. This is how I like to sail: anchored in the present moment, adapting my programme according to the weather, the sea, and how each crew member feels. I provide a circuit according to my customers' desires, while taking into account weather details at the time. Everything is not always possible, the important thing is to come together over a programme that suits everyone without taking risks because of the weather.

How do you handle the life on board ?

I explain, the crew participates if they want to

How does shopping work?

I take care of supply on board

How does cooking work?

I cook

How did you become skipper ?

I discovered the joys of sailing at the age of 7, in a sea class. It was then decided that when I grew up, I would become a sailor. I managed to sail as much as possible, finding roles in crews on local sailing bats. At 16, I was sailing at international level. I left for Brittany to do professional training in the nautical field (naval maintenance technician), and while also preparing for the Mini Transat at the same time.
After a few years when I was alternation convoys and offshore races, I decide to try my luck on the large sailing vessels in the south of France. I passed the Yachtmaster exam and became a captain.
Today, I offer cruises on my own boat while also discover the world with my wife and my two children by boat.

What people say about you?

I am told I'm a dreamer, and it is true that I always have 1001 projects on my mind. I trust life completely and let myself be guided by what it offers me. I do not carry out all my dreams but when I have the opportunity, I seize it.

Your best cruise memory

A small cove in the Bay of Porto where we were alone, at anchorage. The sky was starry, we had candles for dinner ... It was just magic!

In your opinion, what makes for a successful cruise ?

It's a cruise that you talk about starry-eyed once you get back into your daily routine. It is a moment untouched by time, where everyone has been able to disconnect and savour the happiness from the simple things that life on the water brings: looking at the stars, being lulled by the waves, shouting for joy when you see a fish jump from the water.

Your worst cruise memory ?

On the yacht where I worked, I often welcomed wealthy clients who were used to getting what they wanted immediately. It has happened that some do not understand that on water, everything is not achievable and it depends on the weather. My role as a captain was to ensure their safety, it has not always been easy to say no to people's desire that would have been dangerous ...!

The Skipper :Nous avions pierre en tant que skipper, il est formidable. On voit qu'il a trouvé sa vocation , il est fait pour ce métier. Il a su nous faire découvrir la voile, des endroits merveilleux. Pendant le séjour il nous a concocté des petits plats succulents et a su être à notre écoute. C'est pour cela que j'en profite pour le remercier aujourd'hui car grâce à lui nous avons passé un moment extraordinaire. Si un jour on renouvelle l'expérience ça serai avec pierre. A bientôt. PS : merci pour le rhum pierre, il était tellement qu'il est déjà terminé.

The Skipper :Pierre est un formidable skipper, passionné par son bateau, les océans, son projet de tour du monde. La chasse au trésor organisée sur le bateau était un pur moment de plaisir pour petits et grands. Le repas mijoté par Pierre: un pur délice. Vivement notre prochaine escapade sur un WE complet.

The Skipper :Très bien très sympa , super pro et bien sûr passionné de voile et heureux de transmettre. Nous repartirons sûrement de Piriac avec lui pour une autre croisière. Et ça petite bouteille de rhum vanille offerte à la fin de la croisière était délicieuse.

The Skipper :Alors encore merci Pierre pour ces découvertes de Houat / Belle-Île et du golfe du Morbihan. Nous avons adoré ta maîtrise de conduite dans des conditions de navigation un tantinet engagées au départ puis plus calmes les jours suivants. En point d’orgue on se souviendra longtemps du passage jubilatoire dans le courant marin de l’île de la Jument.
