High-level sportsman, adventurer, journalist, author, lecturer, entrepreneur, artist… This jack-of-all-trades lives by the motto “when I don’t have the solution, I make one up”.
His sailing cap is decorated with five Americas Cup campaigns, an Olympic adventure on Flying Dutchman, participation in the Volvo Ocean Race, three European titles and six world titles. However, in 2016, he made himself known to the general public due to his participation in the Vendée Globe.
Since then, his book “Seul au Monde” (XO Editions) has become a best-seller and he has held conferences throughout France for companies looking for stories of real-life adventurers.
Sebastien was also invited by the Vatican to meet his Holiness the Pope, elected 2019 Var Sortsman of the Year and performed in a play titled“Dans l’Enfer du Vendee Globe”, a piece that will tour throughout France on during the Vendée Globe 2024.
At the end of the “Route de Jade” on March 1, 2022, a voyage wherein he sailed halfway around the world with his daughter (a novice in sailing), Sebastien decided to hang up his competitor/adventurer boots and to devote himself to humanitarian work.
