Sail More Work Less – Life is about Sailing

Charles Baudelaire's "Flowers of Evil"

Man and the Sea

Free man, you will always cherish the sea!
The sea is your mirror; you contemplate your soul
In the infinite unrolling of its billows;
Your mind is an abyss that is no less bitter.

about me

I started sailing at the age of 6yo at Ile Tudy sailing school, a village on the seaside in Brittany.

At 23, I started sailing cruises. Since then, I have done 53 sailing cruises world wide.

I have skipped sailing boats up to 55 ft, and organise sailing cruises with crew up to 12 people for period up to 3 weeks.

Since 19/06/2019 I am the proud owner of Grand Citron Vert, a 45′ catamaran Ville Audrain designed by Erik Lerouge, with the objective to go sailing around the world.

Life is about sailing

I started cruising on sailing boats in 1984 in Brittany.
Since then I have done 53 cruises, renting boats in many places in the world.
All types of boats from 30′ to 55′ with crews up to 14 people.
Check the list!
My sources of information and inspiration.
Sailing is about experience.
Many people share their experience, which is very interesting. There is so much to learn from others’ experiences.
Now, with all the Youtube channels, there is so much content available.
