SÉBASTIEN AUDIGANE: MASTER OF THE SEAS PORTRAIT

Sébastien Audigane from Brest grew up surrounded by the Bay of Brest where his true passion for sailing began aboard the family boat and soon after in regattas. His 10 years’ sailing Lasers took him to the highest national level before he started training for the Atlanta Olympics aboard a Soling. Olympic regatta sailing perhaps, but passionate about ocean racing so it was just a matter of time before he joined the Solitaire du Figaro series which he took part in 7 times and won a stage victory in 2002.

JÖRG RIECHERS: MASTERS OF THE SEAS PORTRAIT

46 year-old Jörg Riechers from Hamburg in Germany has taken on IMOCA as a new step in his career. Jörg started sailing on the Baltic aboard his family’s boat before moving on to complete the full dinghy circuit, with notable excellence in the Laser series at international level, and on J24 – a cabined regatta yacht – on which he won the title of European Vice Champion.

SKIPPER PORTRAIT : FRANCOIS GABART – MASTER OF THE SEAS

At 31 years of age, François Gabart is amongst some of the greatest champions in solo offshore racing. Current IMOCA World Champion, this skipper sailed before he knew how to walk.

« As an infant, I was already on board a cruising boat, going on adventures and voyages. I started sailing an Optimist at the age of 6, then motorop, then a Tornado dinghy and then the Figaro class, my first trial of offshore racing, before moving into the IMOCA class a couple of years back. As I grew up, boats have grown up with me. »

SKIPPER PORTRAIT : VINCENT RIOU 'MASTER OF THE SEAS'

42 year-old skipper Vincent Riou was born in a small South Finistère fishing village called Loctudy, where he still lives today. “I’ve always lived by the sea and it’s always been part of my environment since childhood. I can’t say if I would have been a commercial sailor or fisherman if I hadn’t become an ocean skipper, but I would most certainly have done something close to the sea, if not on the sea.”
