Damien Seguin or the art of winning on different fields ! We know the champion in dinghy sailing who won medals in the Paralymics and World Championships. But we are discovering the off-shore sailor who is taking his place among the peloton of candidates for the next Vendée Globe. Born without the use of his left hand, Damien Seguin has never considered his disability as prohibitive, always finding arrangements that enabled him to sail and perform well in double-handed or solo races.

After great results on the Class40 circuit, it was logical for him to engage in a solo round-the-world. For this, he has called upon Jean Le Cam’s advice who helped him to develop his boat and shared his experience around the world. Precious support in regard to the encouraging results of Apicil’s skipper since he started in the IMOCA Class : always at the forefront of “classic” monohulls with centerboards, he regularly brushes foilers. Demonstrating that, with willpower and intelligence, the most audacious projects can compete.
