Go to the distant lands of Lofoten and Spitzbergen with Emmanuel, according to Manu!

What is your motto ?

In sail boating, there is pleasure above all!

Your sailing style ?

Never go against the elements, they are always stronger and safety comes first! Everyone participates in the manoeuvres according to their capacities and their desires. The comfort and well-being of my team members is a priority.

How do you handle the life on board ?

I explain, the crew participates in sailing manœuvres

How does shopping work?

I take care of supply on board

How does cooking work?

I cook

How did you become skipper ?

When I was 20 years old, on a plane that brought me to Guyana, I met someone who went to get a boat from Brazil to go up to the Islands of the Saints. Fifteen days later, he went to Cayenne with the sailboat in question and he was looking for a crew. I embarked and I caught the bug immediately. After sailing as a teammate, I went to school to pass my captain's certificate.

What people say about you?

If I were to believe the messages left in the guest book, the crew members will gladly say that I am jovial, a good cook and I know create a great atmosphere.

Your best cruise memory

My first discovery of Antarctica, with the icebergs and all the local fauna (elephant and leopard seals, penguins, whales ...) and later the pleasure of seeing my crew members discover them.

In your opinion, what makes for a successful cruise ?

A cruise is successful when the crew are delighted when leaving, telling me "See you very soon".
