François Guiffant began sailing at an early age. With a passion for this world, in which he has been involved for over 25 years, he has become a recognised professional in the world of offshore racing, both as a technician and as a sailor. A keen racer, he has cut his teeth with some of the best Mini and Figaro crews and is now racking up the miles on extreme craft. After 5 Vendée Globe preparations as boat captain, François is now preparing for the next solo round-the-world race as skipper.
