3rd participation

Profile

Born on the shores of Lake Geneva, it is on the world's oceans that Alan Roura grew up and matured his dreams of offshore racing. After 11 years of sailing on the family boat, he "passed" his Mini Transat in 2013, at just 20 years old. Three years later, he became the youngest competitor to finish the Vendée Globe (23 years old) and was back for a second participation in 2020, with the North Atlantic solo record in his pocket (2019). Since 2022, supported by new partners and at the helm of a new generation boat, Alan is determined to make the best of it.
