Lives in Saint Philibert (56)
It was at a young age that Philippe Echassoux first sailed on an Optimist followed rapidly with 420 where he became champion of France at 20 years old. After obtaining the sailing sports teaching certificate and after a participation in the Tour de France à la Voile, Philippe learnt the competition in the French match racing team. He improved his skills in technical preparation in racing hardware maintenance and rigging at the CDK yard. Philippe’s strongest point is his experience. A calm and invested technician, he has devoted over ten years to racing projects, having prepared figaro, IMOCA, ORMA, D35… His specialty is in rigging and hydraulic whilst navigating as much as possible to refine all of the MOD70 settings. Constantly in good spirits, Philippe brings to Spindrift racing an indispensable expertise.
