Long time ago I had the dream to be a Cape Horner and the winner of the round the World Race. Some years later with my blue and green « L’Esprit d’Equipe » I have rounded the legendary Cape Horn then with my great team won the 1985/1986 Withbread Round the World Race, now Volvo Ocean Race.

Since often I sailed on magnificent Schooners and SuperYacht, heritage from the past or state of the art in new technology but often without any sailing history. These boats are ready for oceanic adventure but to enter the legend they needs to tell the world a Story.

I‘m sure that owners of Legend yachts old ocean racing ones or new ones, captains and crews share my dream to see their boat racing in the Drake Passage, becoming Cape Horner and finally write an unforgettable page in their logbook.

If you’re feeling adventurous, follow me and together we will write a new chapter in the great history of yachting and will make your boats and our story unforgettable for the 400 year Jubilee of Cape Horn and Drake Passage discovery.
