THE HISTORY OF COMPANY THIERCELIN
1990 It was the birth of the Vendée Globe, and the victory of Titouan Lamazou, which inspired me, so I was going to do everything I could to be part of it. I would complete 5 solo round the world races, including 4 Vendée Globes, with two 2nd places.
2004 is Francis Joyon and his giant trimaran, which inspires me, the desire to pursue my ambition offshore and to sail on these large flying boats; is a kid's dream!

2016 Transformation of the FlyBoat project into a business model: a long-term adventure involving investor profiles different from standard racing models and above all technological and commercial management designed for the long term.
