PORTRAIT OF ALESSANDRO DI BENEDETTO - OCEAN MASTERS: MASTERS OF THE SEAS PORTRAIT N0 14

Alessandro has now completed two round the world tours and speaks with amazing passion and a lot of emotion about them. « It was an incredible adventure, part of the school of life. It allows you to think outside of the little problems that you encounter whilst on land ; We can dip into those treasures and memories that we gather, that we have lived through, traded or shared. »

PORTRAIT TANGUY DE LAMOTTE : OCEAN MASTERS : MASTERS OF THE SEAS NO 13

Tanguy De Lamotte is 36 years old. Although he has been settled in Lorient for quite some time now, he grew up in Versailles in Paris and his first sailing experiences took place in St Malo with his grandfather. Following that, he joined a sailing school at La Baule. In his early life he started out more in the field of ‘urban sports’ like Judo, and only turned his attention towards sailing when he hit his teens.

Countdown to the Route du Rhum and the Barcelona World Race

Just 100 days left to the start of the Route du Rhum and 160 to that of the Barcelona World Race.

7 teams IMOCA 60 have registered to enter the Route du Rhum to try and be Roland Jourdain’s successor, brilliant winner of the 2010 edition. François Gabart (MACIF), Marc Guillemot (SAFRAN), Vincent Riou (PRB), Tanguy De Lamotte (Initiatives-Cœur), Jérémie Beyou (Maitre CoQ), Alessandro Di Benedetto (Team Plastique) and Armel Tripon (Imagine) have already confirmed entry. Louis Burton (Bureau Vallée) shall joint hem shortly.

The Barcelona World Race starts on 31, December and the competitors are finalising their entries but some strong duos are already in place to race in the double-handed round the world race, such as Bernard Stamm teaming up with Jean Le Cam, the both of them having confirmed their participation in the event.

Quick roundtrip to the Azores for Alessandro Di Benedetto

There are some obvious bridges between Alessandro Di Benedetto and the Mini 6.50 world. How could we forget that he first sailed round the world non-stop and single-handedly aboard one of these small race boats. The franco-italian skipper has now settled in Les Sables d’Olonne, and it’s only logical that the organizers of the Mini Race Les Sables d’Olonne – The Azores – Les Sables d’Olonne have offered Alessandro to be the ambassador of the 2014 edition which started on Sunday, 20 July.

Not only does Alessandro support the race, but he has also decided to sail with the fleet to the Azores. He will sail back from Horta single-handed as a qualification passage for the forthcoming Route du Rhum.

LOUIS BURTON : OCEAN MASTERS PORTRAIT : MASTER OF THE SEAS NO 12

Louis Burton is 29 years old and was born in Ivry Sur Seine in the Paris region. His life as a sailor began during his summer holidays with his brother and parents in the Ile aux Moines, Golfe du Morbihan, where he joined the local sailing school. He progressed to go through a few stages with the Glenans and really got into sailing properly at the age of 18 – he would have done so earlier had his parents not pushed him into finishing his studies !
