“We are not only looking at CVs, The Ocean Race is a challenge like no other and each edition is unique.”

“We are looking for skill, attitude and what individuals can bring to the team as a sailor and a person. There is no blueprint for an Ocean Race sailor, accomplished sailors have been broken by the rigours of the race and good sailors have become legends by conquering the challenge the Ocean Race offers up. Ultimately, the race is the harshest selector of them all.”

Newly-appointed Team Skipper, Yoann Richomme, explains his plan for building a team capable of winning The Ocean Race. Seeking a mix of youth and experience, he is commencing a global search to bring together the best group of sailors to take on this legendary challenge.
