Profile

A lover of the ocean, the former journalist turned professional skipper decided to put his boat at the service of science. He installed a number of oceanographic sensors to measure temperature, salinity and CO2 levels, as well as microplastics and environmental DNA in surface waters. This precious data will be made available to the international scientific community to help preserve our oceans. An ongoing adventure, at sea and on shore. With his new boat, fitted with 15 square metres of solar panels, his ambition is to circumnavigate the globe without using fossil energy.
