Profile

Tanguy is one of those who have made their dreams come true. As a child, he imagined himself as an ocean-going adventurer. The deck of his father's boat moored in the port of Vannes was his best playground. That's how his desire for the open seas was born. After graduating from the Merchant Navy, he began to build up his projects: 2 Mini Transat, 2 Mini French Championship titles, 3 Transat AG2R en Figaro, 5 Solitaire du Figaro and today, the greatest challenge of all: the Vendée Globe.

Commitment

Going beyond your limits, confronting nature at its rawest. Tanguy likes to question his approach to competition. His involvement with Lazare is a response to this, providing a powerful engine to demonstrate that adventure goes beyond competition. Being alone out on the ocean is just one way of getting as many people as possible on board to share the Lazare adventure with him.
