What is your motto ?

Simplicity & Pleasure

Your sailing style ?

I sail most of the time. I prefer to sail according to how the crew feels, even if sailing a little under a canvas if necessary.
I like to help the crew with the manoeuvres, according to their desire and skills.

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've been sailing since the age of 20, with friends, as a teammate at first (one of my friends was already an experienced skipper.)
I then left for 8 years of sailing in the Caribbean, passionate about snorkelling. Back in France, and working for the European Commission, I bought a small sailboat in Breskens to learn how to use a sailboat. Then a second sailboat (7.8 m) to go on a tour around Corsica, Sardinia, Italy and Croatia. After training in Glénans, I passed the Captain 200 course at the Cagnes sur Mer Sea University and I bought the ELAN 40 to go around the Mediterranean and provide sailing cruises in Greece.
