Who is François ?

Embark with François on a sailing course in a boat (no cabin)! Departure from Concarneau for a day of training in a 6.50

What is your motto ?

One must not lose one's life by seeking to win it ...

Your sailing style ?

Taking part in the manoeuvres is imperative on board my boats! I do teaching and cannot ensure that I can accompany all the way. I offer active cruises with educational aims.

How do you handle the life on board ?

I explain, the crew participates in sailing manœuvres

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 became an instructor naturally, I came from the curriculum in light sailing. The transition to liveaboard sailing was no-brainer to finally be able to leave the bay and discover what is out there! I am also passionate about offshore racing.

What people say about you?

People say to me that I am passionate.

Your best cruise memory

My best memories are my arrival in Pointe à Pitre during the mini trans-Atlantic race in 2015 and the whales under my keel on my way back from the Azores! It was magical.

In your opinion, what makes for a successful cruise ?

A sailing is successful if the trainee has strengthened and deepened their knowledge.

Your worst cruise memory ?

I have no worst sailing memories!
