Experience: 100 ocean miles / 4000 coastal miles
My plan is to go around the world in 2022. And to start it with a sail across the Atlantic to reach Martinique and then the South American continent. I have been preparing this project for several years. I improved my sailing skills for this with boat schools. With friends, we had rented a catamaran without a skipper in 2019 to sail for 2 weeks between Martinique and the Grenadines Islands. And in September, I was for the first time the skipper of the Dufour 420 that we rented with friends to sail along the Corsican coast between Ajaccio and Bonifacio. I have lived in Toulouse since 2013, I work as a buyer. I am a fan of running, a fan of traveling. As I have lived for more than 10 years in shared apartments, I am very comfortable with community and group life. I have a jovial and empathetic nature which allows me to adapt easily. My plan to travel around the world is an adventure that I wanted to do to celebrate my entry into my thirties but that I postponed for a year because of Covid.
