Born December 12, 1982 in Bordeaux
Lives in Nantes
Now living in Nantes, this keen 37-year old sailor has already had quite a busy past. As a child he spent most of his spare time doing watersports (surfing, sailing etc) and, once he completed his school education, he trained as a skipper at the INB, the French national nautical training centre.
He gained his initial experience as a skipper in a charter company, where the ocean and competition began to resonate with him and, at the age of 23, he took part in his first transatlantic race, before competing, three times, in the Mini Transat regularly finishing towards the head of the fleet.
In January 2016, he joined Erwan Le Roux’s Multi 50 team as a preparateur and sailor. So it was only natural that he would eventually join the technical team at Spindrift racing where Erwan is Boat Captain of Spindrift 2.
Clément's experience, both at sea and on land, as well as his good humour, make him a versatile and valuable member of the team.
