Fresh from his win in the Barcelona World Race aboard a monohull, Loïck Peyron pocketed the Trophée SNSM and the Round Britain and Ireland record aboard the giant trimaran Banque Populaire V. Three events, three successes, two very different boats.
Loïck became familiar with success very early on, in all kinds of events and on all types of sailboats. In 1990, he came second in the Vendée Globe, after rerouting to come to Philippe Poupon’s assistance. In 2010 he was the cornerstone of Team Alinghi in the America’s Cup.
Early on in the millennium, Loïck Peyron stood out as one of the greatest multihull specialists. He won five Orma Champion titles and finished second in The Race. He has a great ream of victories to his credit in the major races, including three wins in The Transat (formerly Ostar), three Round the Worlds and over forty Atlantic crossings, eighteen of which were in solo configuration.
Loïck is not just a remarkable sailor, he is a skipper eager for innovation, a leader of men and an experienced team manager, he knows how to adapt to fresh challenges and to work towards something over the long haul. As enthusiastic as he was on the very first day, he has the ability to talk about sailing and the open ocean with clarity and simplicity, which makes him a much appreciated figure among the general public.
