Profile

In 2014, Benjamin joined Team Vendée Formation where he learned the basics of offshore racing tactics. He finished 1st rookie in the 2015 Solitaire du Figaro, before taking 5th place in 2018. Determined, he bought an old generation IMOCA and lined up six months later at the start of the Transat Jacques Vabre. Despite a tight budget, he became the revelation of the last edition of the Vendée Globe by finishing 9th. He took a new step forward by buying a 2016 foiler with a view to the 2024/25 Vendée Globe, in which he should take part aboard the IMOCA GUYOT environnement - Water Family.
