Profile

Benjamin Ferré is a young Breton who loves life and challenges. With more than 40,000 km hitchhiking around the globe, a crossing of the Atlantic using a sextant, a 4L Trophy and a Mini Transat in 2019, Benjamin is not a newcomer in the world of adventure. When he launched his Mini project, he discovered the offshore racing world: it was the trigger! His new challenge is to take the start of the 2024 Vendée Globe aboard his IMOCA Monnoyeur - Duo For a Job.
