Rank : 4
Discreet but devilishly effective, over the past fifteen years Erwan Le Roux has built a solid track record with, in particular, three first places in the Tour de France à la Voile (in 2008, 2009 and 2014) and as many victories in the famous Transat Jacques Vabre (2009, 2013 and 2015), but also a tremendous success on the legendary Route du Rhum – Destination Guadeloupe in 2014 with, as a bonus, the reference time on the course in the Multi50 category (11 days, 5 hours , 13 minutes and 55 seconds), still relevant to this day.
The Trinitan now wants to write his story around the planet and dreams of the Vendée Globe, a legendary event that he has already touched on during the last edition after being appointed replacement skipper of Clarisse Crémer whom he accompanied during his preparation. Erwan Le Roux is not only endowed with the ability to pilot extreme boats or manage a team, he also stands out by remarkably mastering the main techniques for optimizing performance. Qualities that make him a formidable and feared sailor, even after two years away from the Ocean Fifty circuit.
