Profile

Born into a Parisian family, there was nothing for Clarisse Crémer to pursue offshore racing. However, sailing, which has until now been a summer pastime for the young student, became a real passion and Clarisse accumulated the miles thanks to the support of partners.

Born into a Parisian family, there was nothing for Clarisse Crémer to pursue offshore racing. However, sailing, which has until now been a summer pastime for the young student, became a real passion and Clarisse accumulated the miles thanks to the support of partners.  

In 2013, when she founded a start-up and lived in Paris, Clarisse decided in two months to change her life and move to Brittany in order to fulfill her desires and become a sailor. She shares her Mini 6.50 project on her social channels with naturalness and humor but Clarisse also works a lot to progress and it works. For her first participation, she finished 2nd of the Transat 6.50 2017 in the series boats category.

Today, Clarisse Crémer is joining the Banque Populaire Team, which is propelling her into the IMOCA Class and will participate in the 2020 Vendée Globe. What a huge challenge for the young woman who will this year have an excellent teacher in the person of Armel Le Cléac'h, also skipper of Team Banque Populaire an winner of the last Vendée.

Together, they compete in the Transat Jacques Vabre aboard Banque Populaire X (the former SMA on board which Paul Meilhat won the last Route du Rhum).
