I started sailing with my family and followed the "typical" pathway in Regatta School through to where I am now. What I love about this sport are the constant encounters with nature and the adventure of it all. Not to mention the technical challenges and the continued teamwork. Read our interview with Armel during the Vendée Globe 2017.
Musto apparel is the benchmark in the sailing world and I got my first Musto sailing jacket in 2000, on the Solitaire du Figaro. I consider the brand my partner wherever I race, whether that’s transatlantic to a round-the-world adventure, and is the only technical clothes supplier I trust from head-to-toe. Musto is also fully attentive to my feedback and listen to the way I use their garments aboard IMOCA or the Maxi Trimaran in order to improve them. And I don’t just rely on them on the boat. Musto is my sportswear brand for everyday life - I even wear the brand’s polos when I'm playing golf!
