 Interview with Michel Desjoyeaux - skipper Foncia


Description
Is it still necessary to introduce this great sailor ? Michel Desjoyeaux is made for offshore race, like Bruce Springsteen is made for rock'n roll. Simply the best. If he is still approachable, the winner of the last Vendee Globe is nothing less than the most rewarded sailor in the sailing planet. There are few races which have resisted his ability to make progress technology and performance of his boats, and his brilliance to lead them on the right way at sea, that is to say at the right place, safely and quickly. "The teacher", as they use to call him on the pontoons, has a very impressive record of achievements : he has won the Solitaire of the Figaro three times, he has also made the Grand Slam that seems a mere dream, winning one after the other the three most mythical races offshore single : Vendée-Globe 2000-2001, Route du Rhum 2002, The Transat 2004. Incredible !
