François Morvan
Sailor

Born August 6th 1983 in Châteaubriand (44)
Lives in Vannes (56)

François is only 34 years old but already has a dazzling list of victories; youth world champion of the Hobie 16, French champion of the F18, he accumulated titles before leaving the race between three buoys to head out into the ocean in 2011. He will make his debut offshore on the MOD70 and spend two seasons as tactician and navigator. A rigour that comes from the Olympics, combined with his desire to progress on offshore boats, boost the team.
