Now as a professional sailor, I specialize in custom-designed trips for owners and their families, worldwide sailing boat delivery, highly personalized instruction, yacht management and owner representation.

« Obviously Jean is a great sailor and instructor but what I liked even more was his attitude. His appetite for every new day of sailing is contagious and his positivism and sense of humor make him an absolute pleasure to be around. » Mark V. USA
« J'ai travaillé avec Jean sur 3 différents voiliers, et j'ai été vraiment satisfait par son désir d'améliorer le bateau et mes performance à la voile. » Henk E. Netherlands
« We spent 2 months with Jean on our boat sailing through Northern Europe. Jean expertly guided us through our expedition, from port to port and country to country. He was patient, very engaged, and never missed out on teaching opportunity with the crew. Jean was a perfect addition to our team and a skilled Captain. » Peter N. USA
