Profile

For more than 20 years, Jérémie Beyou has built up one of the most impressive track records in offshore racing. He is a skilled and passionate sailor who shines by his tenacity and perseverance in raising the bar a little higher. One of the favourites for the 2020 Vendée Globe, he was forced to return to Les Sables d'Olonne for repairs and then set off again 9 days, 2 hours and 50 minutes after the official start. He finished 13th. Today, he is at the helm of Charal 2, a new IMOCA that led him to the third step of the podium in the Route du Rhum 2022. More motivated than ever for 2024, he is eager to take his revenge on the last edition.
