The ever-cheerful Frenchman possesses a wealth of expertise. As much an artist as a technician, he learnt his trade at Gepeto Composite. Driven by the combination of aesthetics and technology, his cutting-edge knowledge of composite materials has proved invaluable to a number of teams and boatyards in the past. He has worked previously on MOD70s, the trimarans Groupama 2 and 3, Groupama C (wing-sailed “flying” catamaran), as well as various IMOCA monohulls. He joined Spindrift racing in 2014 with the task of preparing Spindrift 2 for the Jules Verne Trophy record attempt, amongst other projects.
