Benjamin Dutreux FR

Year of birth : 1990


A 30-year-old skipper from Vendée who grew up on the Ile d'Yeu, Benjamin is now at the head of a small offshore racing team. His objective, to build a structured, realistic project, which makes sense and above all in his own way for the Vendée Globe 2020!

To carry out all his projects, Benjamin has created his own team by surrounding himself with trustworthy people, whom he knows well and for a long time. Since then, Benjamin has only had one idea in mind, to line up for the premier ocean racing event, the Vendée Globe. Project now became concrete with the purchase of his IMOCA 60'. Faithful to those who have helped him and trusted him from the beginning, he surrounds himself with sponsors and supporters who are committed to seeing him succeed. The sailor is still looking for partners to make up his budget.


Committed to the protection of the oceans and the planet

As a sailor, Benjamin is the first to see the damage caused by pollution and climate change. Already involved for several years with the Water Family - Du Flacon à la Vague, he wishes to add meaning to his Vendée Globe project by joining forces with existing associations that promote the same values as him.
The objective? Inspire as many people as possible by sharing concrete everyday actions.

That's what Benjamin wants to add to his participation in the Vendée Globe. Indeed, the young sailor, who is committed on a daily basis to protecting the oceans and the planet, wants to lead a project that will make things happen by taking concrete action for future generations.
