Profile

Single-handed, double-handed, crewed, across the Atlantic or around the world... Sébastien Marsset is one of those complete skippers, renowned for his ability to succeed both at the head of his own project and within prestigious teams. Versatile on the water, Sébastien is also versatile on shore, showing the same diligence in his physical preparation as he does in studying the weather, the same enthusiasm in the technical management of his projects as in his relations with his partners. Married with two children, he has set himself the clear goal of being at the start of the 2024 Vendée Globe.
