EDITORIAL Since my sailing debut, I have sailed at sea the equivalent of an Earth-Moon round trip, crossed all the oceans and all the emotions possible. With always this desire to federate around big dreams. Today, I have a new project with 3 axes: 1) rediscover the competition, 2) build a strong history with partner companies, 3) develop health innovations.
For what ? The ambition to show that after 60 years “we are not finished”. Francis Joyon wins the 2018 Route du Rhum at the age of 63. Jean Le Cam ranks 4th in the Vendée Globe 2021 at the age of 61 and returns there in 2024! Offshore racing is a discipline of will, experience and perseverance. Navigating, facing raw nature is vital to me... I love the intensity and adrenaline of competitions. I want to
show that at 62, after 5 solo round the world; we can still challenge ourselves in competition while innovating.
On what ? The Océan Fifty is a very fast, multi-purpose and economical boat. It is a racing & records Trimaran, easy for RP sea outings. Budget-friendly, three times less expensive than a Vendée Globe project, it allows you to experience thrills, fly over the water and... finish on the podium in the major Transats Route du Rhum or Transat Jacques Vabre.
To do what ? Winning races and innovating for health. In 1990 I was about to be 30 years old, when racing, the boom of my boat threw me violently into the sea. Drowning, skull fractures, coma Doctors will tell me
when it is impossible for me to get back on a boat. I had to relearn how to walk, hold on, since then I have managed 5 round the world solo races (4 Vendée Globe), twice 2nd.
My disability and the path that I had to travel to be able to continue my profession-passion, have boosted my desire and reinforced my legitimacy to make the link between my project of competitions on the ocean with that of innovating in health for the safeguard of our autonomy. . To take a Living Lab of innovations on board, so that sailors can make themselves even more useful to earthlings!
