Yannick has been sailing since childhood and has already logged many many nautical miles on board various types of boats: Dinghies, monohulls, catamarans, performance offshore racers. He is just passionate about the wind, ocean and boats – so, be it comfortable coastal cruising or offshore racing, sailing across the cold North Sea or along the sunny Algarve, in challenging tidal waters or on calm lakes – sailing, that’s the main thing!
New adventures are currently being planned and new routes are being prepared. He is constantly adding more sailing spots to his “places-to-sail list”!
Yannick takes always his camera on board to capture the best moments of all sailing trips and enjoys writing about voyages in view of promoting sailing, sharing experiences and encouraging readers to embark on travel adventures at sea. He has already written for the leading sailing magazines in Europe, such as Yacht and Voiles et Voiliers.
All in all, he wants to inspire people to get on a sailing boat, untie the mooring lines, hoist the main sail, unfurl the genoa and discover the world’s oceans. We are glad that he is our official sailing specialist for Sofia na Australia. You can see all Yannick posts here.
