SKIPPER

YANN GUICHARD

After a childhood in Brittany, Yann studied sport in La Rochelle sailing Optimists and 420’s. He was twenty when he discovered the Tornado catamaran and this was to be the start of his passion for multihulls. He just missed out on a medal at the Sydney Olympics, with a fourth place.

Yann became a sought after helm and crewmember in the world of multihulls. Racing on 60’ yachts such La Trinitaine, and Gitana 11, as well as the maxis Orange II and Groupama 3. As skipper of Gitana 11 he competed in the 2010 Route du Rhum, before founding Spindrift racing with Dona Bertarelli in 2011.

Relishing a challenge, Yann decided to race the 2015 Route du Rhum, solo onboard the maxi trimaran. An incredible feat, that saw him complete this classic offshore regatta in a triumphant second place. Yann and his crew attempted their first Jules Verne Trophy race in 2015/16, achieving the third best time in history: 47 days 10 hours 59 minutes 2 seconds.

In 2016, Yann was only Frenchman to be invited to take part in the World Match Racing Tour. Despite never having match raced before, Yann and his crew caught their competitor’s attention, showing themselves to be highly experienced multihull sailors.

With several podium positions, Yann secured himself a place amongst the talented international elite in match racing finishing third in the 2017 Match Racing World Championship in Shenzhen, China.

Yann and the Spindrift Racing team return to the World Match Racing Tour in 2018-2019 with their sights firmly set on clinching the Match Racing World Championship title.
