DATE OF BIRTH: 3 October 2002
BOAT: Blutopia

I discovered the joy of sailing during family cruises in Brittany and the Mediterranean before even knowing how to swim.

At the age of 10, the Brest harbor became my playground, first navigating it in an Optimist and later in a Laser.

My athletic abilities allowed me to join the Brest Sailing Center as part of a sports study program during my high school years. There, I honed my skills as a racer competing in Olympic dinghy sailing as part of the French Youth National Team.

However, Olympic sailing brought me more frustration than pleasure, and I dreamed of broader horizons and independence. Solo offshore racing has always been my true passion!

While continuing my journey as a high-level athlete at the La Rochelle Sailing Center alongside my studies at a business school, I ventured into offshore racing on a Mini 6.50. After achieving two podium finishes in my first races, I confirmed my new calling for offshore sailing.

With a desire to undertake new challenges, I made the switch, and at just 20 years old, I decided to pursue my project in the Figaro 3 class. I am fortunate to have joined the La Rochelle Sailing Excellence Center, where I am currently training with the support of my first financial partners, the ocean protection association Blutopia, and my school Excelia.

The real adventure can now begin!
