French sailor from Brittany I sailed a lot when I was living at Brest. Then I crossed several time the Atlantic both sides. I crossed single handed in 1987 from Guadeloupe to Brittany. I also delivered a boat to an owner in Casamance Sénégal. In 2011 I bought, with my wife, a Catamaran (42 feet) and sailed around the Atlantic. Atlantic Islands, Cabo verde, Salvador de Bahia (Brasil) to the Caribbean to Cuba and back to France with a stop at the Azores. Back in 2016 we sold the boat. Now I would like to finish my trip with the Pacific journey from Panama to Polynesia and more if possible. Easy with the life at sea, sailing, the life on a boat to discover people and countries. Currently I live at Strasbourg and I’m retired
