Your sailing style ?

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 spent my childhood at the of one of the most beautiful spots in Morbihan, in the heart of the bay of Quiberon, where I first learned to windsurf. I then passed my sailing instructor exam at 18. I trained in shipbuilding in the stronghold of the large offshore multihulls which is Trinité sur Mar. Then I finished my state certificate sailing exam while doing regattas to broaden my horizons, I have also received a merchant marine certificate (Captain 200 sailing exam).
Since then, I've been teaching sailing and helping others discover the Breton coast and its islands. I've also skippered 4 winters in the Caribbean.

What people say about you?

I am often told that I am passionate about what I do, that I am patient and good at explaining things.

Your best cruise memory

When you sail in southern Brittany, you have the chance to meet some pretty typical boats. On a week's cruise departing from La Trinité sur mer, we saw the biggest racing trimarans in the world. Then, on the coast of Lorient we found ourselves tacking with three Pen Duicks of Eric Tabarly that were going back to their base. The next day on the way to Port Laforêt, we were on board with the last tuna boat from Groix (Le Biche). And finally the crew had the pleasure of taking photos of a dozen monohulls (18m) from the Vendée Globe Challenge which were coming back after a training session. It was just magical.

In your opinion, what makes for a successful cruise ?

This is when the crew arrives to find their bearings quickly on board and that the route plan is consistent according to everyone's level and the weather.

Your worst cruise memory ?

Fortunately for me up to now, I have never had any trouble to speak of. The more you anticipate, the more pleasant the cruise is. It is true though that wanting to leave the Channel against the current with 4 meter waves and 25 knots of westerly winds is not always what everyone would call a great pleasure!
