"I have always been passionate about offshore racing. After a fairly typical journey (family cruises, Glénan sailing school, IRC races, etc.) and earning an engineering degree, I decided to embark on the Mini-Transat in 2021. I was eager to explore the open sea alone.

In 2020, I acquired my first boat: a Pogo 3, and spent 2 years preparing to cross the Atlantic. I immersed myself in training, seasonal races, and the broader life of a sailor, skipper, and entrepreneur.

I successfully completed the 2021 Mini-Transat race from Les Sables d'Olonne to Guadeloupe. I confirmed the joy I find in being alone at sea. I feel good, I feel alive. Upon my return to the mainland, I decided to resume work by establishing a consulting firm. I enjoy my consulting work and find it fulfilling.

However, I have a new project in mind. The Figaro circuit, with its strict class rules, appeals to me. 2024 seems to be the right time. I purchased Figaro #15, a double winner of the Solitaire, and I am giving myself every opportunity to have a successful season on this circuit that I am eager to explore."
