Jules Verne Trophy rookie, 1 participation in the Vendée Globe 2016
At 33 years of age, he is the youngest of the sailors on the Maxi Edmond de Rothschild. A native of Réunion Island, where he was born, Morgan made a name for himself in the very demanding Figaro class, before launching into the adventure of the open ocean in Imoca during the Vendée Globe 2016. For his first participation, he unfortunately had to throw in the towel in Cape Town due to technical damage. This forced stop at the gateway to the Southern Ocean has prompted his desire to go sailing in these remote regions. With a keen sense of slipping along and as much at ease in the pilot seat (he has his pilot’s licence) as he is on a foiling kite or at the helm of the Maxi Edmond de Rothschild, Morgan’s talent is renowned and acknowledged. He’s setting off on his first Jules Verne Trophy!
