Profile

Anthony is both an excellent racer (he started out in Olympic sailing) and an excellent sailor who has sailed on all the important boats, both single-handed and crewed. This double profile added to his helming skills and his experience of crewed round the world races make him a very valuable partner for the project.

During the Ultim' multihulls' winter break, Anthony joined Biotherm's crew in the latest The Ocean Race, skippered by Paul Meilhat. He sailed several legs, including Leg 3 between Cape Town and Itajaí, the longest ever run in the race.
