Maître voilier depuis près de 35 ans, pour de grosses voileries et 2 équipes de la Coupe de l’America (en 1992 et 1995), Rémi Aubrun possède une expertise dans la voilerie qu'il a réussit à appliquer dans la course au large, notamment en Mini 6.50.

In 1988, a long stay in Australia allowed Rémi to learn the sailmaker's trade, which he then perfected on the floors of international sailmakers in New Zealand, the United States and France. In 1992, he joined the French and then the Italian team as a sailmaker for the 1992 America's Cup in San Diego and repeated this experience for the French challenge in 1995. He worked on the sails of many 60-footers, including Loïck Peyuron, Isabelle Autissier and Francis Joyon.
Trained in sail design, Rémi joined the All Purpose sailmaker in La Trinité Carnac in 2003 to develop the design office. He has never ceased to develop the technical know-how of the sailmaker in the service of the customers and the performance of the sails, by working with the most efficient software, the most innovative membranes and the most audacious concepts. He enjoys experimenting, modelling and validating the latest innovations on all the boats he is particularly fond of, the Mini 650, the Class 40 and the IMOCA 60.

With a track record of racing in Australian 18 footers, Laser 5000s, Match Racing, Maxi and Surprise, Rémi discovered the Mini 650 in 1999 and became fascinated by this technologically stunning and physically uncompromising machine.

In 2006, he decided to have his high-tech prototype built to take part in the 2009 Mini Transat La Rochelle-Salvador de Bahia. He finished 12th despite a leak that almost forced him to abandon.

From the Mini 6.50 to the IMOCA Open 60, there is a little less than 12 meters that Rémi Aubrun happily crosses by accompanying the faithful customers of the sailmaker on these supports: Tanguy de Lamotte, Thomas Ruyant, Giancarlo Pedote, Jorg Riechers...

Above all, Rémi appreciates the sporting aspect of these boats, which are designed for ocean racing, whether solo or with a crew. Thus, he is not content with chaperoning his clients, designing and building the best possible sails synonymous with performance and results, he sails regularly and participates in major races, in order to test and validate the innovations he has made.

And today, it is with Louis Duc that he is taking his first steps in the IMOCA circuit.
