The Skipper

I am only an amateur, and it is with a lot of humility that I will take part in this race.

It’s hard to talk about either, and I honestly don’t like it too much! For me to arrive with my boat ready on the starting line in September 2022 will be my first objective. Even if I like the regatta, it is not to imagine making a result that I want to participate. Because yes, I want to participate. I want to be in! I made this promise to myself the morning of Jean Luc’s arrival. I was on the water to meet VDH. So much what he had just achieved was exceptional for me. At the helm of this small motor boat that I had rented for the occasion, I went 30 miles and saw her under blue spinnaker sounds. This is where I decided to do everything to try to be there in 4 years. Covid made me miss a first boat 1 year ago.
