Profile

At the age of 20, Antoine Cornic took part in the Mini Transat and finished 10th. Proud of this honourable ranking, he went on to attempt the North Atlantic record in a Mini, but broke his boat. Several years later, after starting a family, he decided to set sail again. Tenacious, he set up an IMOCA project in 2021, supported by Pascal Barreau and his company Ebac. In 2022, he met Benjamin Salah, CEO of Human Immobilier. The three men with shared values decided to set sail together for the Vendée Globe 2024.

The project's main partner, Human Immobilier, with its 650 agencies, is a major player in the property sector. Already involved in sport through its Human Sport entity, joining Antoine Cornic and his team's project seemed an obvious choice in light of their shared values. 

Ebac, a company that makes mattresses from recycled plastic waste, is Antoine Cornic's longest-standing partner. Their story is one of friendship, but also of shared values, notably their fight for cleaner oceans.

Commitment

Antoine Cornic and his partner Ebac are taking part in the fight against plastic at sea with the #reveillonsnousbyebac campaign to raise awareness of this environmental issue. He also supports the Mathys association, which fights cancer affecting young children, particularly cerebral gliomatosis.
