DATE OF BIRTH: 18 September 1998
BOAT: Région Bretagne - CMB Espoir
Victor Le Pape embraced the sailing community at a very young age, as he was barely two years old when he first set foot on his family's cruising boat. Soon, it became soon impossible for him not to sail… For about 10 years, Victor competed at a high level in windsurfing before turning to cruise boats, with which he won the French Open 5.70 Championship in 2017. He then moved to offshore racing with a « Mini 6.50 » sailboat and later took the helm of a « Figaro BENETEAU 3 », to compete on his first Challenge Espoir in 2018, which was won by Tom Laperche. Victor came back two years later, and even if at this time, Gaston Morvan was the new young up-and-comer… This didn't discourage the sailor, who tried his best again in November 2022 and won his valuable entry ticket into the Région Bretagne – CMB program. For his first participation to The Solitaire du Figaro Paprec he won the Bizuth rankings. A promising victory that leaves him hoping for a TOP 10 in the French Elite offshore sailing championship.
