From an early age, Violette has been involved in the world of competitive sailing. After reaching the top level in light 420 sailing, crossing the English Channel in an Optimist at the age of 15, then the Straits of Gibraltar at 16, the sailor from La Rochelle developed a passion for ocean racing.
In 2018, she then decided to embark on her first adventure, the Mini Transat, and became the youngest woman to take part in this race. Violette doesn't stop there. A year later, she joined the Figaro circuit and competed in the Solitaire du Figaro for three consecutive seasons to perfect her skills in preparation for the Vendée Globe 2024. Determined, it was in 2023 that she acquired her IMOCA, Jean Le Cam's Farr design, which had already completed five round-the-world races.
Her 60-foot boat will carry the colors of the Apprentis d'Auteuil Foundation, which is committed to helping the most vulnerable young people and families, as well as those of over 120 MacDonalds restaurants.
