Jean-Marie is the technical and sports director of the Maître CoQ team. He is Yannick's right-hand man, ensuring the daily management of the technical team.

He knows the boat like the back of his hand and watches over it like oil on fire. With a huge experience in high level sailing competition, coming from Olympic sailing with a participation in the Sydney Olympics in 2000 and with 3 America's Cup campaigns, Jean-Marie is a hard worker, very organized, with an eye for detail so as not to let anything escape. His technical expertise is a major added value for the development of the project and he will be a great asset in the Transat Jacques Vabre 2021.
