Skipper - preparator Go to skipper medias

A 2nd go for a Top 5 spot

In 2017, Jonathan had his first attempt at the Mini-Transat La Boulangère. Though the skipper and boat préparateur wasn’t expecting much in the way of results, he’d hoped to be able to hold rank sufficiently well to return to the race two years on with a more high-performance prototype. Job done!

Now equipped with a brand new boat, a Verdier design which he had built for him, the skipper from the Var region of southern France is now preparing to write a different story. “Two years ago, I had an old boat that dated back to 2001. I wasn’t in a position to vie with the top sailors. The goal was to complete the race. This year, things are different. I’m lucky enough to be helming a modern boat and I’ve got my eye on performance. I’m targeting a Top 5.”

Based in the Mediterranean, Jonathan has managed to reveal the boat’s true potential through numerous sessions out on the water. “She’s an excellent boat. Right now, I’m eager to see how she rates in relation to the others as I haven’t yet had the opportunity to see how she sails against my rivals”. Watch this space…
