Since the Sun Trip was designed on the same model as the Vendée Globe, a famous non-stop single-handed yacht race around the world, we were hoping for a strong figure from the sea world to mentor our incredible 2018 Edition.
We are pleased to announce the French navigator Roland Jourdain as the Official Sun Trip 2018 Mentor!
His outlook on the Sun Trip will give participants energy, and we hope to see him among them for the official departure and between Lyon and Chamonix.
Twice winner of the Route du Rhum and the Jacques Vabre transat, three times departing on the Vendée globe, he is the current leader Kairos team, Roland Jourdain is one of the world’s greatest navigators. As a media personality, he has been compaining for environmental awareness and the development of bio-based composite materials for many years.
His commitment to Sun Trip 2018 gives a strength to our event, the World’s Greatest Adventure!
