Following on from two Tour de France à la Voiles, one participation in a Viper world championship then various J80 races, this year Loïc Moisand will be on the start line of the Mini Transat EuroChef. “It’s a stupid idea, which ended up becoming real”, jokes the technology entrepreneur, who essentially sees the event as a means of learning about offshore racing.
“The event is truly extraordinary. Crossing the Atlantic alone, on such a small boat, is really something. It’s bound to be rewarding, both on a human and technical level”, says the skipper of the Pogo 3 Stratos, who has been travelling backwards and forwards between his training cluster in Lorient and Annecy-le-Vieux, the town where he lives with his family of four children, to prepare as best he can for the upcoming challenge.
Getting to the other side and not breaking anything that could put paid to his adventure are among his main objectives. “Finishing between 10th and 20th would be great too”, notes the sailor born in Paris, whose competitive spirit may well resurface once he’s at sea.
